Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (İHH) was fired upon by Syrian planes near Aleppo on May 9.
The person who died was a Syrian national while one of the wounded victims was still in critical condition, the organization said in a recent statement, adding that the truck belonged to the Young Muslims Delegation, one of İHH’s partners in Syria. The organization claimed the truck was transporting food and materials, such as blankets and mattresses.
The attack occurred as the truck was passing through one of the city’s entry points. Aleppo and its outskirts are mainly held by Syrian rebels, but the city’s most affluent parts still remain under the control of the Syrian government.
İHH spearheaded the Mavi Marmara aid flotilla, which was targeted by the Israeli army in 2010 in a raid that killed nine Turkish activists.
