Attack on Syria's Aleppo Aid Convoy Killed at Least 20 Civilians - IFRC
BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – On Monday, the UN officials said that an aid convoy was bombed near the Syrian city of Aleppo and there were casualties. Earlier on Tuesday, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said that at least one humanitarian worker and around 20 civilians were killed in the attack.

"For the EU, access to humanitarian aid is essential for saving lives in Syria. What we saw yesterday is extremely alarming, and we are particularly concerned about reports of raids on humanitarian convoys. The safety and neutrality of humanitarian workers must be preserved at all times in line with the basic principles entrenched in international humanitarian law," Nabila Massrali said at a briefing.

She added that the EU foreign policy chief was in direct contact with co-chairs of the International Syria Support Group in New York.
