Moscow: Russian warplanes and Syrian troops never target civilians
11 February، 2016
Russian Defense Ministry reiterated that the Russian warplanes and Syrian troops never target civilians.
“No Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes in Aleppo city area yesterday. The nearest target engaged was over 20 kilometers away from the city,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday, adding that “on the contrary, airplanes from the US-led anti-ISIS coalition were active over Aleppo.”
“On Wednesday, at 13:55 Moscow time, two American A-10 assault aircraft entered Syrian airspace from Turkey, flew right to the city of Aleppo and bombed targets there, destroying nine facilities,” Konashenkov added.
“Terrorists in Syria are trying to flee to Turkey ‘blending into’ civilians of Aleppo as they know Russian warplanes don’t attack peaceful population,” Konashenkov stressed.
“Mass desertion is fixed among gunmen groups operating in the area of Aleppo. Terrorists intimidate local population and use force to drive people to the Turkish border,” he said.
“Dropping their weapons, gunmen are trying to hide among these crowds as Russian warplanes and Syrian government troops never target civilians,” he told reporters.
He pointed out that Russia’s Defense Ministry denies the allegations stated by the Spokesman for the Pentagon, col. Steve Warren that Russian warplanes allegedly bombed two hospitals in Aleppo.
“In his words, with the destruction of the two main hospitals in Aleppo, some 50,000 Syrian have been allegedly deprived of vital services,” Konashenkov said, pointing out that “Warren forgot to mention either hospitals’ coordinates, or the time of the airstrikes, or sources of information. Absolutely nothing.”
