Press TV reports:

Russian fighter jets have airdropped a large scale of humanitarian aid in areas besieged by the Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Syria’s east.

Sources in Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that warplanes parachuted food and cargo to the city of Deir al-Zour, which is held by Daesh.

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said the delivery, which was more than 40 tonnes, was also delivered to other localities around the city, which saw the massacre of a large group of people by Daesh in the weekend.

“The Syrian leadership received information from the settlements to which humanitarian aid was airlifted that all cargoes were received and distributed among local residents,” the Russian official said.

Konashenkov said Russian warplanes also conducted combat sorties against Daesh positions in eastern Syria, killing at least 60 terrorists and inflicting losses on the weaponry depots used by the militants.
