White House skeptical on Russia humanitarian operation in Aleppo

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is deeply concerned about the situation in Aleppo, Syria, where Russian and Syrian government forces have cut off opposition-held areas, the White House said on Friday.

“We’re taking a look of Russia’s announcement of humanitarian corridors but given their record on this, we’re skeptical to say the least,” White House spokesman Eric Schultz said at a news briefing.
