Representatives of the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties said with reference to the Syrian military that the humanitarian convoy of the Red Crescent would leave for the suburbs of Damascus on March 5.
As many as 45 trucks loaded with humanitarian cargoes will bring food, medicine and basic necessities to Eastern Ghouta of Syria that remains one of the last strongholds of terrorists in Syria, from where militants periodically strike both the outskirts and the center of the Syrian capital.
