Belarusians continue to flee from Syria amid new escalation

Belarusian citizens are being evacuated from Syria where the situation is tightening again. Another group of citizens of Russia, Syria, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan have left the zone of the armed conflict, all in all 87 people. 

They got on board a Russian plane, which delivered humanitarian aid to Latakia, the main port city of the country. Recently, it has become another hot spot in Syria. At least six people died from the shelling of the militant group "Islamic State", with two dozen injured.

A little less than a week ago, the country's capital Damascus was attacked. A powerful blast occurred near the city market. About a dozen civilians became victims of the militants.
