Syrian air force 'targeted' aid convoy in deadly bombing: UN probe | thenewstribe.com

GENEVA: Syria’s air force carried out the September raid that killed at least 10 aid workers in Aleppo province by deliberately targeting a humanitarian convoy, a UN-backed probe said Wednesday.

“Syrian air forces targeted a humanitarian aid convoy in Aleppo countryside,” the United Nations Commission of Inquiry said referring to the September 19 attack in Urem al-Kubra, adding that the raid “was meticulously planned and ruthlessly carried out”, to destroy the aid.

A separate UN investigation said in December that it was unable to establish blame for the bombing that forced aid groups to temporarily stop deliveries of life-saving relief.
