Syria: ‘Civilian objects were not damaged’: Russia’s statements on its attacks in Syria unmasked
Since Russia formally intervened in the armed conflict in Syria on 30 September, its armed forces have launched thousands of attacks. It has claimed that its armed forces are only striking “terrorist” targets and has not publicly acknowledged that they have caused any civilian deaths and injuries. However, Russian attacks in Syria appear to have actually killed hundreds of civilians and destroyed or damaged hospitals and dozens of homes and other civilian objects. In this briefing, Amnesty International sets out its findings with respect to six attacks.
