UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — On Monday, the UN officials said that an aid convoy was hit near 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.

"Those who bombed them were cowards," Ban said at the UN General Assembly session, expressing hope that those responsible for the bombing would be brought to justice.

The Russian Defense Ministry said earlier in the day that the examination of video footage reveals no signs of an ammunition strikes on the convoy, adding that the cargo was set on fire that "strangely coincided with a major offensive by militants in Aleppo."

The ministry emphasized that the perpetrator of the fire, as well as his goal may be known by members of the "White Helmets" organization that has connection to al-Nusra Front terrorists who have "accidentally" been at the right time and in the right place with cameras.
