Russia bombs Syrian 'terrorists' over 'chemical' attack

Russian air forces carried out a series of air strikes against Syrian rebels in response to an alleged chlorine attack launched against civilians in Aleppo.

"The planes of Russia’s Aerospace Defense Forces carried out strikes on the detected artillery positions of terrorists in the area, from where the shelling of Aleppo civilians with chemical munitions was conducted late on November 24," a spokesman for Russia's Defense Ministry stated and noted all rebel targets were destroyed during the operation.

Earlier, Russia stated its experts concluded that shells used by rebels, which injured dozens of civilians in the area, were filled with chlorine.
