Russia blames US for bombings in Syrian Aleppo

228 Days ago

Moscow: Russia denied on Thursday its involvement in bombings in Aleppo, Syria's second largest city, that hit two hospitals, blaming US aircraft for the attack instead.

It said two US Air Force A-10 attack jets entered the Syrian air space from Turkey, flew to Aleppo and launched strikes against facilities in the city on Wednesday," the Russian defence ministry said.

Earlier on Wednesday, US military official Steve Warren said in Baghdad that Russian aircraft bombed the two hospitals in Aleppo, depriving some 50,000 Syrians of medical care.

The Russian ministry said no Russian aircraft operated near Aleppo on Wednesday and the nearest target hit by the Russian air force in Syria was located some 20 km away from the city.

A Russian spokesman said that only war planes and strike drones of the US-led coalition were seen above Aleppo.

He also denied accusations that Russian aircraft were launching strikes against civilians in Syria.

He said it were the terrorists who were threatening civilians.

Since October, Syrian government forces supported by Russian airstrikes have been launching offensives against rebels in Aleppo, which, according to Western media, have caused thousands of people to flee. (IANS)
