Syria: Russian MoD says humanitarian corridors under attack

Armed opposition forces are responsible for an attack on a humanitarian convoy carrying Syrian civilians to a border-crossing out of Eastern Ghouta, stated the spokesperson of the Russian Centre for Syrian reconciliation Yury Yevtushenko, at a press briefing in Damascus on Thursday. «When civilians moved towards the checkpoint, militants of the Faylak Al-Rahman armed group shot them, burned... Еще three cars, and there are dead and wounded,» Yevtushenko said. He added that ongoing shelling of the 'humanitarian corridor' has suspended transfers and «no one has managed to leave the enclave at the border crossing point at the moment.» According to Yevtushenko, «international humanitarian organisations, in cooperation with the Syrian authorities, decided to postpone the humanitarian convoy planned for the morning of March 8 to the settlement of Duma at a later date.»
