More than 170 tons of humanitarian aid was delivered by Russian troops to settlements on the eastern side of the Euphrates River. The food and medicine needed by the locals were delivered despite the heatwave. The motorcade made a journey of more than 1.5 thousand kilometers, and the Euphrates River had to be crossed several times. The pontoon bridge, which Russian engineers erected near Deir ez-Zor, came in very handy. Many residents of the city of Qamishli fell below the poverty line, where Russians delivered 60 tons of humanitarian aid. To prevent an attack on the humanitarian convoy, the Russian military police guarded it along the entire route, and military aircraft covered the convoy from the air. After the convoy returns to the Russian Khmeimim airbase and replenishes supplies, the servicemen will again travel to remote areas of the Syrian Arab Republic.
