UN probe finds Syrian air force deliberately attacked aid convoy, while rebels used human shields in eastern Aleppo.

Both sides in last year’s battle for Syria’s Aleppo city committed war crimes, including a “deliberate” bombing of a humanitarian convoy by the Syrian government, according to a new United Nations investigation.

 

The UN Commission of Inquiry’s report released on Wednesday said┬áSyrian government and allied Russian forces “pervasively used” unguided munitions to bomb densely populated areas in rebel-held eastern Aleppo between July and its fall on December 22, amounting to the war crime of indiscriminate attacks.
