Russia has delivered much needed humanitarian aid to residents of Syria’s flashpoint city of Aleppo. The Russian military says aid is being distributed at Shihan Roundabout. The food parcels consist of rice and flour as well as canned fish and meat. The humanitarian situation in Aleppo continues to be problematic and some of the city’s districts remain under intense shelling. On Sunday the United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting to discuss the escalating violence in Aleppo. Violence has surged throughout Syria once again since a fragile ceasefire came to an end. Parts of Aleppo are split between government forces and foreign-backed terrorist groups.
