Russian military servicemen have delivered humanitarian aid to Syria’s southernmost inhabited community of al-Mutaya, which has joined the reconciliation process in the Daraa province, the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides reported.

Essential goods were distributed not far from the inhabited community. More than 4 tonnes of food and 15 tonnes of water were distributed. Security was maintained by Russian military police and Syrian troops.

“Today we brought the items, which will help them overcome the hardships experienced today by such remote settlements that had been under the control of militants for many years,” the center’s Chief Major-General Alexei Tsygankov told reporters.

He noted that the inhabited community was facing a humanitarian disaster because of militants’ actions who refused to provide access to relief aid in the areas controlled by them.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

I wonder if this will stop the UN from moaning about opening the border, not a chance.
