The United States holds Russia responsible for the air strike on an aid convoy in Syria which was an “enormous humanitarian tragedy,” White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said on Tuesday.

“We hold the Russian government responsible for air strikes in this space, given that their commitment under the cessation of hostilities was to certainly ground air operations where humanitarian assistance is flowing,” Rhodes told reporters.

He said the United States prefers to continue with the ceasefire in Syria, but is concerned by Russia’s failure to show good faith.
