Nine civilians were killed by Russian air strikes on Friday in the northwestern province of Aleppo, a Civil Defense official said.

Some 30 people were injured when Russian warplanes struck residential areas in the opposition-held Kfar Dael village, civil defense official Beibars Meshal told Turkey’s Anadolu Agency.

He said three children were among those killed in the attack.

Meanwhile, the regime army and allied Shiite militias have taken control of the Al-Assad Suburb and Munian village in the western Aleppo countryside, a local reporter said.

Meanwhile, the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army made new gains against the Islamic State group, taking the towns of Haji Kousa, Halisa, Bslaja and Al-Aoun in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, pressing closer to the ISIS stronghold of Al-Bab city.
