US Department of State has expressed outrage over attack on humanitarian convoy near Aleppo, Syria. According to the statement, the convoy was following the route known for Syrian as well as Russian authorities.

"The United States is outraged by reports that a humanitarian aid convoy was bombed near Aleppo today… The destination of this convoy was known to the Syrian regime and the Russian federation and yet these aid workers were killed in their attempt to provide relief to the Syrian people… The United States will raise this issue directly with Russia. Given the egregious violation of the Cessation of Hostilities we will reassess the future prospects for cooperation with Russia," US Department of State spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.

The spokesperson also noted that the United States will revise prospects of cooperation with Russia after the attack.

"The United States will raise this issue directly with Russia. Given the egregious violation of the Cessation of Hostilities we will reassess the future prospects for cooperation with Russia," Kirby added.

According to earlier media reports, the UN and Syrian Arab Red Crescent convoy was struck while delivering aid in Syria’s Aleppo governorate by airstrikes or mortar fire.

The UN convoy was dispatched earlier in the day to deliver relief to the beleaguered provinces of Aleppo and Homs for over 160,000 people.

Despite the US-Russia deal reached on September 9, fragile nationwide ceasefire in Syria in force since September 12 is undermined by numerous outbreaks of hostilities.
