MOSCOW, November 8. /TASS/. Russian warplanes flew no sorties and delivered no air strikes near Khan Shaykhun in the vicinity of Syria’s city of Idlib on Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
"The Russian Defense Ministry refutes foreign media allegations that Russian warplanes delivered air strikes in the vicinity of the city of Idlib, near Khan Shaykhun town. Russian warplanes flew no sorties in the mentioned area on November 8 and delivered no air strikes," a ministry spokesman said.
"We recommend foreign mass media which value their reputation not to yield to information provocations coming from organizations identifying themselves as human rights, such as the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights," he said.
Earlier, a number of mass media said citing the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that nine people, including seven children, were killed in Russia’s bombardment of Idlib.
