Syria: Russian aid arrives in Hama as signing of ceasefire is celebrated

Syrian Arab Republic, Ain al-Bad
March 18, 2016 at 21:13 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage emerged on Thursday showing a ceasefire agreement signing ceremony in the settlement of Ain al-Bad in the Syrian province of Hama.

After the signing of the document, residents of the area received humanitarian aid that was delivered jointly by the Syrian and Russian military. The aid usually includes flour, sugar, canned goods, rice, buckwheat, tea, coffee and biscuits.

A new round of intra-Syria talks began in Geneva on Monday, March 14. Negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition forces were suspended on February 3 and resumed after a cessation of hostilities came into effect on February 27. Despite occasional reports of violations, the truce is said to be generally holding. The main goal of the intra-Syria negotiations, which are due to continue through to March 24, is to ultimately end the five-year conflict in Syria.
