Russia's largest batch of humanitarian aid ever sent to Syria has been delivered to the Arab country's port of Tartus.

The 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid, consistent of mostly foodstuffs, arrived in the port on Wednesday. It was delivered via two transport vessels, Sparta-1 and Sparta-2.

"This is the biggest humanitarian aid supply batch delivered to Syria by sea. It mainly consists of foodstuffs — flour, sugar, canned goods. At the same time, the canned goods deliveries take into account the traditions of the population, so it is beef and fish,” said Russia's military commandant at the port.

While addressing reporters, Tartus Mayor Haidar Murhej thanked Russia for its humanitarian efforts, while stressing that the aid would be swiftly distributed among those in need.

"First of all we appreciate the help and thank Russia for the support. As you know our countries have maintained friendly relations since the times of the USSR. The humanitarian cargo we received will soon be delivered to the regions which need it the most. First of all to the refugee camps and to the territories recently liberated from the terrorists," he said.
