On Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, an airstrike hits a United Nations convoy in eastern Aleppo, Syria killing 20 people. The airstrike destroys 31 trucks full of food and medical aid supplies that were intended to be delivered to the people of Aleppo. The U.S. announces that they believe Russia was behind the attack, although Russia is pointing fingers at terrorists. The following days see continued airstrikes, rendering the fragile cease-fire over.
