The Syrian Coalition strongly condemns the Russian air force’s targeting of a relief aid convoy on the outskirts of the town of Izaz, five km away from the Turkish border. The airstrike, which occurred on Wednesday, left six civilians killed and burnt eight trucks.
Russia also intensified air strikes on the rebel-held villages along the Turkish border in northern rural Latakia.
The Syrian Coalition urges the international community to take serious steps to stop this flagrant aggression on Syria, emphasizing that Russia’s actions in Syria are as barbaric as those of the Assad regime as both target civilians.
The Syrian Coalition stresses that targeting relief aid convoys constitutes a flagrant violation of the UN Security Council resolutions, adding that Moscow is wriggling out of its commitments as a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
Three schools, 14 hospitals, a pharmaceutical plant and food factory were earlier targeted by the Russian air force.
The Syrian Coalition stresses that rarely 6% of the overall Russian air strikes on Syria have targeted ISIS, warning that the refugee crisis will worsen if the Russian aggression continues. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
