Airstrikes Hit Syria's Aleppo Despite Ceasefire


Last week Al Nusra-led fighters attempted a massive attack on the positions of government forces and the Russian military police unit northeast of the city of Hama, an area which is part of the de-escalation zone that covers Idlib province.

US-backed forces in eastern Syria say Russian Federation bombed their positions in a major natural gas field they recently captured from Islamic State militants.

Syrian government forces, backed by Russian air power and Iranian-allied militias, have gained control of most of Deir al-Zor on the western side of the Euphrates River.

The news comes after the SDF accused Russian Federation of attacking their positions near gas fields in Deir ez-Zor, killing and wounding several militants. The TV reporter said the town, which links the militant group's two strongholds now under attack, served as a key station for IS oil transport and distribution.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 37 civilians including 12 children were killed in Russia's airstrikes in Idlib, in the country's north.

The advances against Islamic State have brought USA -backed forces and the Syrian government side, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, into close proximity.


We review the key developments in Syria, including the SDF accusing Russia of once again attacking its positions in Deir Ezzor, Russian warplanes killing 37 in Idlib and Moscow blaming USA policy in Syria for the death of a Russian military official in Deir Ezzor.

All targets were located outside settlements and at a safe distance from the areas where U.S. Special Forces and militants of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces operated, Konashenkov said.

At least seven Russian soldiers have been killed, and Russia's Defence Ministry acknowledged that one of its generals was killed in the area on Sunday.

Syria's regime, backed by its ally Russian Federation, is carrying out its own campaign against Daesh in Deir Ezzor, largely on the western side of the Euphrates, including in provincial capital Deir Ezzor city.

Activists and monitoring groups reported airstrikes in Aleppo, Idlib and Hama provinces, as well as clashes between rebels and pro-government forces in northern Syria and on the outskirts of the capital, Damascus.
