 Russia commits fresh airstrikes in Syria, - BBC

Russia conducted at least 30 airstrikes against the rebels' positions in Syria on Thursday.

Censor.NET reports citing BBC.

The strikes reportedly targeted positions in the north-west held by the Army of Conquest rebel alliance.

Russia said it had struck four Islamic State (IS) facilities overnight, and destroyed a "terrorist HQ" outside Idlib and a command post near Hama.

Russia carried out about 20 missions on Wednesday. The US fears they targeted non-IS opponents of Russia's ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
