Russia said on Tuesday its military was looking into "information" about an airstrike on a UN aid convoy in Syria after end of a week-long Syrian ceasefire.

"I don't think it is possible or correct to make any unsubstantiated conclusions," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"Our military is currently verifying information about this strike and I hope they will receive concrete information from the ground and can then release a statement."

The UN said at least 18 trucks in a 31-vehicle convoy were destroyed late Monday as they were en route to deliver humanitarian assistance to the hard-to-reach town of Orum al-Kubra, killing a Red Crescent staff member and dozen civilians.
