On Wednesday, the RIA news agency reported: “Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that any Russian military action in Syria tried to minimise civilian casualties and was precisely targeted.”
According to a Syrian rebel and a war monitor, Russia resumed air strikes against insurgents in the rebel-held enclave of Idlib province on Tuesday after a hiatus of several weeks. On the other hand, Russia has not confirmed it has resumed air strikes.
Sergei Ryabkov also said: “We, as we have said many times before, act precisely, selectively, trying to minimise possible risks to the peaceful population.”
