Syrian War Report – September 20, 2016: Militant ‘Humanitarian’ Convoy Destroyed on Road near Aleppo

A Syria Red Crescent Society aid convoy (reportedly 10-20 trucks) was at Urem al-Kubra allegedly destroyed by an air strike in western Aleppo, according to pro-militant sources. There are conflicting reports about the movement of convoy. Western media say that the convoy was heading from the government-controlled western Aleppo while the purpose of such a direction remains unclear. Other reports indicate that the convoy was heading from the countryside of Idlib to northern Aleppo, carrying weapons and ammunition for terrorists in the area. The confirmed facts are:
  • There are no facts proving that the bombed convoy was authorized and inspected by the Syrian government and the UN.
  • The released video of air strike scene has depicted a number of burning vehicles. Photos, released next morning by pro-militant sources and aimed to prove that this was a humanitarian convoy, do not contain traces of fire situation.
Whether this was a humanitarian convoy or not, this incident indicates a new rung on the escalation ladder and will be used by the US-backed militant groups and Washington to prove that they were not responsible for the collapse of cessation of hostilities in Syria.

The (humanitarian) convoy could have been deliberately targeted by US-terrorist forces (as a false flag), or it could have been struck by the Syrian-Russian Air Forces (where the convoy was carrying arms, and not a UN convoy) or that it was accidentally struck by the latter group.

Regardless of the perpetrators, this incident will be used by the West as propaganda to distract from the incident where US aircraft attacked the Syrian Army in Deir Ezzor and essentially broke the ceasefire.

Presently the US is 'having trouble' splitting the 'moderate' terrorist groups from the Al Qaeda linked groups. Separating these groups is impossible. Therefore the US will favour a resumption of fighting rather than have this (open secret) reality exposed:
