Russian bombers wipe out terrorist targets in Syria with cruise missiles

Russian air strikes on northwest Syria's mainly extremist-controlled province of Idlib on Monday killed at least 37 civilians including 12 children, a Britain-based monitor said.

Asapov, RT reported, was described as one of the senior Russian military advisers in Syria. The strikes also killed a large number IS militants, according to the report.

The targets, which were all situated away from populated areas, included ISIS's underground bases, ammunition depots and armored vehicles, the military said.

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.

"We are now taking joint moves with Iran and Russian Federation to establish a de-escalation zone in the area of the Syrian city of Afrin in the north of the country", the prime minister said, TASS reported. The Russian jets also managed to destroy jihadists' rocket launchers and workshops that produce explosive-laden vehicles.

Russian military personnel have built a bridge across the Euphrates River, not far from the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, in less than 48 hours despite coming under constant shelling, a Ministry of Defense official said.

Fighters with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said a Russian attack killed one of their fighters and wounded two others Monday in the Conoco natural gas field, which was taken from Islamic State fighters over the weekend.

Moscow remains concerned that while Washington claims it is focused on fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS\ISIL) terrorists, on the ground the US-led forces act in a different manner.

Also on Monday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia accused Russian Federation of killing one of its fighters and wounding others in strikes on a gas facility it captured two days earlier from the Daesh terror group in eastern Syria.

"The Russian Air Force does not strike populated areas in the Syrian Arab Republic", General Igor Konashenkov told RT.
