Amnesty International added to the criticism of Russia's air campaign in Syria with a new report Wednesday saying the bombings have killed at least 200 civilians in Homs, Idlib and Aleppo provinces. "Some Russian airstrikes appear to have directly attacked civilians or civilian objects by striking residential areas with no evident military target and even medical facilities, resulting in deaths and injuries to civilians," Amnesty Middle East and North Africa Program Director Philip Luther said. In reference to Russia's alleged responsibility for Sunday's deadly strikes in Idlib, a senior State Department official said it was not for the U.S. or the U.S. coalition to investigate claims of collateral damage by Russian aircraft. The official added that U.S. authorities had evidence showing that some Russian airstrikes had not been "as precise" and had received "credible allegations" of Russian strikes hitting facilities such as hospitals and schools and killing or wounding innocent people.
