Syria Civilians die due to Air strikes by Russian fighter jets

Civilian deaths are being reported from apparent air strikes by Russian fighter jets in the Syrian province of Hama and in areas bordering the Idlib province.

According to UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Russian forces carried out the air strikes this morning, in addition to targeting anti-government armed groups with surface-to-surface missiles.

Meanwhile, Syrian army forces have launched a ground operation in the country’s west, targeting Khan Shaykhun, a town in Idlib strategically situated on a rebel-controlled route that connects Aleppo and Damascus.

The developments come at a time when Syrian fighters are targeting government forces and pro-regime units in Hama with Grad missiles.
