    Attack on UN Aid Convoy Near Aleppo (37)

    Russia will demand a rigorous investigation into the attack on a UN aid convoy near Aleppo.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow will continue demanding a comprehensive investigation into the attack on a humanitarian aid convoy last week near the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

    "We will demand the most thorough investigation," Lavrov said in an interview with the NTV broadcaster.

    UN Secretary-General’s deputy spokesman Farhan Haq told Sputnik on September 20 that the UN and Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) convoy was struck in Urum al-Kubra northwest of Aleppo while delivering humanitarian aid. At least 18 of the 31 trucks in the convoy were hit as Russia and the United States traded blame on the attack.
