The strike targeted a drug warehouse and a civil defense center in Idlib
At least 11 people were killed and 25 others injured Saturday when Russian fighter jets struck an opposition-held neighborhood in western Syria's Idlib province, Turkey's news agency Anadolu reports referring to a local civil defense official.
The Russian strike targeted a drug warehouse and a civil defense center in Turmanin neighborhood, Vasik Harak told Anadolu Agency.
He said the raid has left a number of houses destroyed and caused a fire, but firefighters managed to bring the fire under control.
Syria has been locked in a vicious war since early 2011. More than a quarter of a million people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced across the war-battered country, according to the UN.
Several countries called the USA and the EU to add more sanctions against Russia because of shelling hospitals, killing civilians and preventing medical evacuations, as well as targeting an aid convoy with the loss of around 20 lives. The United Nations have called on the International Criminal Court to investigate Russian war crimes in Syria.
According to the UN, in the eastern zone of the city of Aleppo, 275,000 civilians are still living and 8,000 rebels are holding out against Syrian, Russian and Iranian-backed forces.
