UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Today, in Syria, near the city of Serakib in the Idlib de-escalation zone, a humanitarian corridor was opened with the participation of the Russian Center for Reconciliation.
127 people were able to leave the territory controlled by militants of various radical groups. Our film crew is now located on the contact line near the village of Serakip, from our point to the position of the militants of Hayat-Khreashan no more than 3 kilometers. In general, to make it clear – there are no more than 15 kilometers to the city of Idlib.
The humanitarian corridor was organized by Russian officers of the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria. There is also a mobile hospital deployed by the Syrian army, where refugees can receive prompt medical assistance.
“We arrived through the corridor, it was very difficult and dangerous, we were taking out from Idlib with the children,” the refugee said.
The officers of the Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria have also organized a humanitarian aid distribution point here.
“They distributed about 60 food sets. We prepared 250 sets. We are distributing it to everyone in need, that’s enough for everyone,” said Peter Wangeli, a spokesman for the Center for Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria.
In the area of the corridor, the situation is calm, although the sounds of artillery shells are heard on the contact line.
The militants continue to hide behind the Turkish presence in order to strike both at military targets located near the contact line and at peaceful neighborhoods of settlements located near the Idlib de-escalation zone.
