Russia: Air Force Has Not Hit Syria Civilian Targets

Russian air forces have not hit civilian targets since they started a bombing campaign in Syria nearly three months ago, a senior Russian officer said in an interview with Rossiya 24 television.
Russia's Defense Ministry strongly rejected the allegations that Russia's bombing of Syria had killed civilians, Reuters reported.
"The Military Space Forces have never hit civilian targets in Syria," said Viktor Bondarev, Colonel General and commander-in-chief of Russia's Aerospace Forces. Pilots are well-trained and "have never missed their targets, have never hit ... so-called sensitive places: schools, hospitals, mosques," he said.
The Kremlin began its campaign of air strikes in Syria on Sept. 30, saying it wanted to help Moscow's main Middle East ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, defeat Islamic State.
