A total of 14 tonnes of humanitarian aid cargo has been delivered to the checkpoints in the Syrian city of Aleppo, Lt. Gen. Sergei Chvarkov, chief of the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation, said Saturday.


“The reconciliation center has delivered 14 tonnes of humanitarian aid to checkpoints, including foodstuff, medicines and goods of prime necessity,” Chvarkov told journalists, adding that the aid packages have been delivered to over 500 residents in need.


On Thursday, Moscow and Damascus launched humanitarian relief operation in Aleppo, establishing three corridors for civilians and one for militants wishing to surrender.
