    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) The Syria army denied on Friday reports about alleged airstrikes on civilian targets in eastern Aleppo that killed dozens of people.

    "Our air force did not attack any civilian target or infrastructure that could be used by civilians," Brigadier General Samir Suleiman, head of the Syrian Army information department, told Sputnik.
