WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, a refugee camp in Syria's Idlib near Turkey's border has been hit by an airstrike, leaving at least 28 people, including women and children dead.

"You should confirm with the [US] Department of Defense, but I believe this to be true: there were no US or coalition aircraft that were operating in the region, primarily because our efforts are focused on ISIL [Daesh]," Earnest told reporters.
