‘Militants driving a pickup with a mortar sought cover behind the UN-led aid convoy that was destroyed near Aleppo, the Russian military has said, releasing a video from one of its monitoring drones in Syria.

 

The convoy with humanitarian aid heading to the embattled city of Aleppo can be seen being accompanied by a militant pickup truck, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov has said.

 

“Analysis of the yesterday’s drone footage monitoring the movement of the aid convoy through the militant held areas helped to reveal new details,” Konashenkov said. He added that the drone footage points at insurgents seeking cover behind the trucks.’
