UN suspends Aid delivery in Syria after attack on aid trucks.
The United Nations suspended all Aid convoys in Syria after a deadly attack on aid trucks and warehouse carrying life saving supplies in rural Aleppo on Monday night, leaving 12 kills mostly truck drivers and Red Crescent workers according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The convoy of 31 trucks was carrying life saving supplies to around 80,000 people when it was targeted and attacked near the city of Aleppo, according to the United Nations and other Aid organizations.
The UN and many countries including the United States released statements early morning condemning the attack strictly on what is believed to be one of the darkest day for humanitarians across the world.
A UN spokesperson said early morning that the attack will leave thousands of people without desperately needed food and medicine, adding also “ At the moment the aid operation remains suspended while we assess and reevaluate the situation on the ground”.
Human activists and Syrian Organizations criticized the UN decision of suspending Aid convoys, justifying that this decision will only affect Syrians in many provinces who are in desperate need for supplies.
No one has claimed the responsibility for the attacks until now, although some fingers are being pointed now between ISIS, the Syrian regime and others, the executors remain unidentified.
