Kremlin Denies Russian, Syrian Air Forces Conducted Strikes on Aleppo

Russian defense ministry rejects claims by monitors and news outlets claiming jets struck three Aleppo hospitals in as little as 24 hours

Russian and Syrian air forces have not conducted strikes on Aleppo for the past 28 days, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

In a press statement on Tuesday, ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov denied the reports circulated by Al-Jazeera, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and other sources claiming that Russian jets bombed three hospitals in Aleppo over a period of 24 hours.

Konashenkov said that concentrated cruise missile strikes on Islamic State and Nusra Front positions Wednesday did not target any locations in Aleppo.
