The UN is planning to restore its humanitarian programs in Syria from September 26, according to the UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura.

The trucks with supplies will travel to Syria next Monday. Though the issue of security of humanitarian employees isn’t  settled yet.

The column of heavy-duty trailers delivering the UN and the Red Crescent humanitarian aid was shelled overnight into Tuesday. 20 people died. This practically violated the truce, set on September 12.

Washington stated that two Russian bombers SU-24 were spotted in the air on the moment of the attack. Moscow denies their involvement into the attack.

The US State Secretary John Kerry called to terminate all flights over Nothern part of Syria to reduce tension in the region.
