“A UN convoy delivered more than 150 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the Idlib de-escalation zone via the Miznaz checkpoint in the Aleppo governorate,” he said, adding that Syrian servicemen and security officers in cooperation with the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties ensured security of the UN humanitarian convoy.
