France and Russia have agreed to send 50 metric tons of medical aid to government-controlled eastern Ghouta in Syria, French officials said on Friday.
A Russian cargo plane arrived late Friday in Chateauroux in central France to take the aid, which includes medical supplies and other essential goods, to a Russian military base in northwestern Syria.
It will then be transported to eastern Ghouta, which the Syrian government retook from rebel forces in April.
Once in Syria, the cargo will be distributed by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) with the help of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent. [ ]

Isn’t it just evident how hysterical Deutsche Welle is here.
I just looked at Reuters; same level of hysterics. They’re just screaming for Macron to be impeached. (Of course.)
