Russian airstrikes in Syria
Russian airstrikes in desert areas of eastern Syria have killed 11 suspected members of Daesh.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors casualties of the decade-old conflict, said the overnight strikes focused on an area between Palmyra and Al-Sukhna.
Daseh’s members “hide in caves in this area,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.
The strikes killed 11 Daesh suspects and wounded around 20 others, some of them seriously, he said.
