Russian Cargo Plane Crashes in Syria Killing All 32 on Board

Violence halts rare aid delivery to Syria's eastern Ghouta

A technical malfunction could have caused the crash, the ministry added, saying that the aircraft was not attacked.

The latest accident comes after a Sukhoi military jet crashed while trying to take off from Hmeymim in October past year, killing two crew members.

The accident was the largest involving a Russian military plane since 2016, when a Tupolev 154 crashed with 92 on board shortly after taking off from Sochi airport. A major-general, 26 officers, noncommissioned officers and contract soldiers have been killed in the An-26 plane crash in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Russian defense ministry extended an offer for armed rebels and their families - not just civilians - to leave eastern Ghouta through a safe corridor set up earlier for civilians, though none have left.

The death toll of the Russian passenger plane that crashed in Syria on Tuesday, has risen to 39, Russia's Defence Ministry confirmed.

More than 40 Russian military personnel died in Syria since Moscow launched its air campaign, in many cases using Hmeimim as a base, Russian officials say.

The plane crashed near Syrian Hmeymim base at 3:00 pm when landing.

In late 2017, a Russian Mi-24 helicopter crashed in Syria while flying from Hmeymim airbase. Moscow denies they exist. Some 450 such aircraft are still in service, with majority used by the Russian military.

Khmeimim is a permanent Russian airbase in Syria, from where it carries out aerial operations in support of the Assad govt.

In the latest attempt to end the seven-year war, the foreign ministers of regime allies Iran and Russian Federation and rebel backer Turkey are to meet next week in Astana. Gudkov said in a social media post.
