Experts Claim UN Aid Convoy Attack Was “Staged Hoax”

According to Iranian Mehr News Agency, independent experts of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) claimed that an attack on the UN-Syrian Arab Red Crescent aid convoy was a "well-prepared hoax". Their report was founded on extensive review of all photo and video material which is available.

It’ known that the attack was conducted in Urum al-Kubra that is controlled by terrorists from Jabhat Fateh al-Sham. According to the experts, nobody could know and track the route.

The experts came to a conclusion that the target of the attack weren’t vehicles themselves but the cargo. That is why the trucks’ cockpits were undamaged and had no traces of debris or holes. Only the cargo was damaged – it was burnt. The absence of pot-holes and shell craters on the road excludes the possibility of an air attack. A car with a mortar on the convoy’s route may prove the fact that the UN trucks were shelled from the ground.

It should be also mentioned that later militants carried out a large-scale assault towards Aleppo supported by heavy fire of artillery, tanks and MLRS. Unlikely that it was an accident. The attack on the convoy may turn out to be carefully planned to slander the Syrian army and its allies.

In his turn, on October 5 the US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said that the Department denies the report of the ISSG experts’ report. At a daily briefing, answering the journalists’ questions, he claimed the US government had seen no signs of the investigation. Toner called the report ‘bogus.’

The American side won’t provide any evidence and refers only to the “investigation” of its own special services which has resulted in nothing.
