“Analysis of the yesterday’s drone footage monitoring the movement of the aid convoy through the militant held areas helped to reveal new details,” spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov, said. “The video clearly shows how the terrorists are relocating a pickup truck with a large-caliber mortar.”
The video clearly sohws a militant vehicle riding alongside a line of aid trucks, and stopping right next to one of them.
On September 19, a 31-trucks humanitarian convoy was attacked while heading to Aleppo city. 20 civilians and one aid worker were killed as result of the attack. Initial mediia reports suggested that the convoy had been targeted by an airstrike (Russian or Syrian).
