    The Russian government does not have data on reliability of the information about bombings of a Syrian village that caused civilian deaths by the Syrian Army, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier this week, Western media reported that Syrian government airstrikes had killed dozens of civilians at markets in northwestern Syria following the collapse of the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva. According to the reports, this has become the deadliest violence in the war-torn country since the Russia-US brokered ceasefire took effect in February.

    "I cannot comment and we have no information proving that these accusations are true. I think that our military could better comment on that issue," Peskov said answering the question whether the Russian authorities have discussed this issue with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

    Syria has been mired in civil war since March 2011, with government forces loyal to Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups, such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front, which are banned in many countries including Russia.
