MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian doctors at the Russian Emergencies Ministry's mobile field hospital in Aleppo, who have helped more than 1,500 Syrian civilians, are using the latest methods to treat the wounded, the ministry said Thursday.

"The doctors are using special antiseptic and antibacterial bandages to tend to the infected wounds, which many residents of Aleppo have when they come to the hospitals for treatment, as well as bandages saturated with special agents that can improve the patients' condition, lead to the healing of 90 percent of the burn surface, thus saving the patients' life," the ministry said in a press release.

According to the ministry, many of the people come to the hospital with festering wounds that had long been left unattended.

In early December, the Russian Emergencies Ministry sent a mobile field hospital with the Centrospas search and rescue team to provide immediate medical assistance to residents of Syria's embattled city of Aleppo.

On December 16, the Russian Defense Ministry's center for Syrian reconciliation said that the Syrian army operation to liberate the eastern neighborhoods of the Syrian city of Aleppo was over, and that Syrian government troops were eliminating separate hotbeds of militant resistance.
