Hospital staff accuse Russia of bombing children in Syria

Two children were killed in Russian airstrikes on a Syrian town on Tuesday, health workers said.

The attacks on a residential area of Anadan, to the northwest of Aleppo, left many civilians injured, according to medical staff at a local field hospital.

Anadan lies in a region where Daesh is fighting opposition groups. 

Russia, which says the air campaign it launched in Syria last week targeted Daesh, has been accused of bombing “moderate” fighters opposed to Russia’s ally President Bashar al-Assad.

In a separate airstrike, Russian warplanes attacked ammunition depots in western Aleppo province belonging to the Suqur al-Jabal group, Commander Hassan Haj Ali told Anadolu Agency.

“All of the ammunition depots were completely destroyed,” he said, adding that three Russian aircraft had attacked.

Suqur al-Jabal fights under the banner of the Free Syrian Army and has reportedly been supported by Turkey and the West.
