Russian warplanes bombed a Turkish truck convoy at the Syrian border on Wednesday amid increasing tensions between the two countries over Turkey's downing of a Russian jet.

Video from Doğan News Agency showed the aftermath of the strikes near Azaz, a Syrian border town.

Turkish media said the trucks belonged to IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, an Istanbul-based humanitarian organization with connections to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. IHH said it has teams in the area but did not own the trucks.

The state-run Anadolu News Agency blamed Russia for the attack and said the trucks were taking supplies to refugees.

Seven people were killed and ten others injured in the air strike, Daily Sabah reported.

Russian media said Wednesday the air force had doubled its air strikes in the area, targeting Syria opposition groups al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army, which both have a presence in Azaz. Earlier, the activist monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Russian airstrikes in Azaz.

I have not seen this news on other media so cant confirm its credibility yet.

Being known as "accomplices of Butcher Assad" will perhaps be a fitting label for us...

Russia claims that the trucks were warned 10 times in 5 minutes.

I don't like Russia and its dictatorship and how it supports other dictatorships in Iran and Syria. Turkey too has a borderline dictatorship, but atleast it doesn't directly support other dictatorships that are as bad as Syrian and Iranian.

Really?
Being friends with the perpetrators of the Armenian genocide seems to have done us no harm.

One's dead and buried and the other is alive and kicking.

Leaving it up to you to decide which is which.

I get why Putin would want revenge but if the story's true and the trucks were charity, not military, then it's disgusting he targeted them.

I can't confirm or deny if the Russian plane was in Turkish airspace , but if it was they had no other choice but to shoot it down. The same would go for another country in Europe. By arming the Kurds , it would start a massive internal conflict and probably start a war.
