Word on the street is that Russia bombed Turkish aid convoy belonging to Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), killing 7

IHH is the group which in 2010 sent the Gaza flotilla full of club-wielding jihadists humanitarians seeking martyrdom. Somehow I don't think that Russia is going to apologize.
(Daily Sabah) At least seven people died, 10 got injured after an apparent airstrike, reportedly by Russian jets, targeted an aid convoy in northwestern Syrian town of Azaz near a border crossing with Turkey on Wednesday.

Footage filmed at a crossing on the Syrian side of the border with Turkey's southern province of Kilis showed lorries burning. The head of the rebel-run border crossing in the same area said separately that air strikes hit a garage for commercial trailers, killing seven lorry drivers.

Anadolu news agency reported that 20 lorries were targeted, which were carrying cement and iron brought from Turkey in a regular procedure.

Speaking to Daily Sabah, Serkan Nergis from the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) said that the targeted area is located some 5 kilometers southwest of the Öncüpınar Border Crossing.
