"As far as we know, neither nor Syrian military aircraft have ever operated there… ISIL terrorists have never been seen in this area, which has been controlled by the Free Syrian Army since 2013,” he added.
General Kartapolov displayed photographs of the bombed area.
"The pictures show no signs of military activity around these little garden houses, no trenches, no trace of military hardware, nor military hardware proper. These are just gardens and fields with structures for storing agricultural tools," he noted.
"Why did they have to be destroyed? It looks as if someone's pilots trained or carried out a strike to report to their commanders on their combat mission accomplishment," General Kartapolov said.
