The convoy was on the road between Aleppo and Damascus and consisted of people who had fled the battle in the area near Saraqib. There, Syrian and Iran-backed troops are fighting against rebels. In doing so, they receive air support from Russia.

'We think that Russian aircraft attacked the convoy', according to a relief worker. Twelve people were injured among the refugees.
