More than 80 percent of UN convoys carrying humanitarian aid have been delayed or blocked in Syria, media reported on Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to The Guardian newspaper, only six out of 33 approved deliveries managed to reach their destination in September until attack on a convoy interrupted relief supplies to war-torn Syria leading to their suspension.

On September 19, a UN-Syrian Arab Red Crescent convoy carrying humanitarian aid for Aleppo province was hit by a strike, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). As a result, 18 of 31 trucks were destroyed and at least 21 individuals were killed. A number of US military officials claimed that Russia was responsible, while Moscow called for a thorough investigation into the incident.

The incident took place amid intensified fighting in Aleppo escalating after nationwide ceasefire regime valid since September 12 broke down.
