MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Defence Ministry confirmed on Wednesday that its war planes had bombed targets in Syria’s Idlib province the previous day, Russian news agencies reported.

The ministry was cited as saying that the air strikes had only targeted Nusra Front militants and had not struck populated areas. Planes involved in the attack had taken off from Russia’s Hmeymim air base in Latakia Province, it said.
