“As part of the national reconciliation process, more than a ton of bread, baked from Russian flour, was delivered to the bakery factory in the city of Hama by Russian soldiers in Dair El-Fardis. More than 2 tons of humanitarian aid were also delivered to local residents, including kits with sweet gifts for children, bags of flour, fish and canned meat, sugar and sets of convenience foods, ”the message reads.

A representative of the local administration, Gani Dabul, said that the settlement had been controlled by terrorists for more than 3 years, who were supported by some of the residents.

“This village was not under state control, it was the militants who controlled it. We have to admit that many of them behaved correctly, because they themselves were residents of our village. They did not destroy anything here, as it did in other places, ”said Daboul.

Farmer Abdel Almunim confirmed the fact that part of the local residents had gone over to the side of the militants, however, he stressed that “the main threat came from visiting terrorists who were engaged in robbery, looting and extortion in the village”.

“I had a bus, and once, returning from the market where I was selling my crop, we were ambushed by the militants, they took my nephew along with the bus. After some time, he was released, taking in return all our earnings - about 200 thousand lire, ”he said.

“Most of the local residents who joined the terrorists were drawn into illegal gangs against their will, and immediately after the liberation of the settlement, these people surrendered their weapons,” said Almunim.

“I acquired a weapon for self-defense. When the army came here and offered to join the reconciliation process, I handed over the weapon. It didn't take long - the whole process lasted just 10 minutes, ”said another resident of the village of Radi Al-Ahmad, who currently works at a bakery.

The locality was liberated 3 a month ago, and so far almost all residents who have previously left their homes have returned to it.

According to Sergey Ivanov, a representative of the Russian Center for Reconciliation, “the front line runs from here two kilometers away, and seven kilometers away is the settlement of Al-Rastan, where the same peaceful people still live under the pressure of gangsters”.

He noted that elders from El Rastan were present at the humanitarian action, and when they returned, they would tell about what they had seen in Deir El-Fardiz.

“In the localities occupied by terrorists, there are militants of Dzhebhat an-Nusra, as well as many local ones who want to surrender their weapons, but they lack the necessary incentive. Thanks to this humanitarian action, the elders, I am sure, will let them know that in order to return to a peaceful life, it is necessary, first of all, to return to their families and give up their weapons, ”stressed Ivanov.

      Who knows, if I had lived under such fear for a couple of years, I would not have handed over an automatic machine for products. I think they hand over the main, and the spare ones are stored further.

      But the province of Homs was the instigator of the mess.

      If there is nothing to eat, there is nowhere to threaten life and run away? Everything is simple there. Not to curtsy. What surprises you?

    Russia and its army have always been distinguished by their humane attitude to the civilian population of even enemy countries ...

    “The East is a delicate matter,” there the right of the strong, negotiations and “carrot” do much more than carpet bombing.

    “In the settlements occupied by terrorists, there are militants of Jebhat al-Nusra, as well as many locals who want to surrender weapons, but they lacks for this needed incentive. Thanks to this humanitarian action, the elders, I am sure, will be informed to them that in order to return to a peaceful life, first of all, return to their families and surrender weapons", - Ivanov emphasized.

    Humanitarian aid is a good incentive to return to hungry families, but what the hell they 3 year did not remember about their children. Warriors ... How to gum. help that again clutching for Kalash.
