MOSCOW, October 19 /TASS/. Russia expects the U.S. State Department to condemn an air strike at civilian infrastructure in Hassadjek village near Aleppo where Belgian Air Force planes were noticed, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her page in Facebook.
"We are waiting for reaction from the State Department and its tough condemnation of the strikes at civilian targets and the murder of innocent civilians," she said. "I do not think it’s going to be hard to find the photos of the dead and launch an appropriate campaign on CNN," the Russian diplomat said.
Earlier, the Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria reported in its bulletin that an air strike delivered at Hassadjek village on the night to October 18 killed six people and left another four injured. There were no Syrian government or Russian planes in the designated area at that time. But the planes of the U.S. - led Anti-ISIS Coalition were operating in the area. Two Belgian F-16 fighter jets flew over Hassadjek.
The governments of some western countries and a number of foreign media outlets have actively accused Russia of bombing civilian targets in Aleppo in recent weeks. During his interview with CNN given on October 12, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was shown the photo of a child who was allegedly hurt during a Russian air strike. Later, Zakharova pointed to double standards in using the images of victims in the Syrian conflict.
