Deir Ezzor, SANA – Deir Ezzor Governor Mohammad Ibrahim Samra said that aid convoys loaded with food and health supplies have been organized to be sent to the locals in the eastern neighborhoods of Deir Ezzor city.

In a statement to SANA, the Governor said that the convoys are ready to be delivered to the neighborhoods adjacent to the airport, and they are currently waiting near al-Assad Hospital and should be delivered within the next few hours.

SANA’s correspondent in Deir Ezzor said that around 2,000 families are living in the eastern neighborhoods, and that they had suffered greatly from the ISIS-imposed siege and attacks in the past months, during which Syrian Arab Army helicopters airdropped food and medical supplies to them.

Syrian Arab Army units broke the siege on Deir Ezzor Miltiary Airport and the adjacent neighborhoods following operations against ISIS in the cemeteries area that separates the eastern and western neighborhoods.
