BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – Representatives of the Russian Centre for a Reconciliation of Opposing Sides on Monday delivered humanitarian aid to the residents of Al Waer, Homs Province, which was recently liberated from militants.
Dozens of people queued up as the Russian soldiers distributed packages of medicine and food.
The militants reportedly left the city in May after extensive negotiations with the officers of the Russian Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in the Syrian Arab Republic.
One of the Russian soldiers, Ilya Volovitsky, explained that the negotiations were difficult, but the parties “reached the agreement and confirmed that about 10,000 people would leave Al-Waer within two months. As a result, about 20,000 militants and members of their families left.”
