The aviation attack on an aid convoy in rural Aleppo claimed lives of 20 people, including one Red Crescent staff member.

The Syrian Arab Red Crescent President, Dr Abdulrahman Attar said: “We’re totally devastated by the deaths of so many people, including one of our colleagues, the director of our sub-branch, Omar Barakat.
"He was a committed and brave member of our family of committed staff and volunteers, working relentlessly to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people. It is totally unacceptable that our staff and volunteers continue to pay such a high price because of the ongoing fighting," he added.
