Syria says two Russian aid planes arrive in country

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Two Russian planes carrying 80 tonnes of humanitarian aid arrived at an airport in Syria’s city of Latakia on Saturday, Syrian state media reported.

Syria has dismissed a number of reports from media and intelligence sources in recent days that its ally Moscow has been trying to send military support.
