Airstrikes hit aid convoys near Aleppo after ceasefire ends
Damascus: After a week of fragile ceasefire, Russian or Syrian warplanes on Monday bombed two aid convoys near the city of Aleppo.
The Syrian Red Crescent trucks came under the attack after a routine delivery of supplies arranged by an international organisation to the beleaguered city.
“The vehicles were hit by five to six missiles while parked in Urum al-Kubra town,” said a local resident.
“Two aid convoys were hit during the attack. Moreover, the UN would release further details soon,” said the organisation’s spokesman Stéphane Durrajic.
- There were no immediate comments on the assault by the Syrian Army or government.
- “More than 10 people have been killed in the attack,” said a Red Crescent official.
