Russian military have delivered about 28 tons of humanitarian aid to Syrian civilians.
Russian planes have delivered more than 20 tons of humanitarian cargo to the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria reported in its news-bulletin.

20 tons air dropped to Deir Ezzor, this is great news. The SAA heroes there will hold their front lines. Daesh forces are being bled dry here. Let’s hope for a counter attack soon.
I think Daesh is desperate for grains since they’re now engaged in a pitch battle with the Kurds for Karamah. That’s a town along the east bank highway where the highway from Hasaka terminates. Down the road a piece is Al Kulayb and it’s grain silos, which were captured recently by the Kurds. The Kurds also captured the grain silos at Shanina, which is close to Raqqa. The only other grain silos held by ISIS are way over near the Tabqa Dam at the Suwaydiya Ag. Silo & Storage Depot Complex. That’s right next to Big Suwaydiya which is controlled by the Kurds so probably expect to lose that place fairly soon. Daesh even sent a force across the river to put pressure on the Kurdish held town of Khass Hibal which is near the Al Kulayb silos. Grain sales was a steady source of income for Daesh along with oil products. Can’t pay your hired help if you don’t have any products to sell.
