MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Belgian Defense Minister Steven Vandeput on Wednesday dismissed claims regarding the country's Air Force responsibility for the airstrike on a Syrian village of Hassajek near Aleppo.
"Belgium is not involved in Aleppo strike. Russian disinformation," Vandeput posted on Twitter.
België niet betrokken bij burgerdoden Aleppo. Russische desinformatie.— Steven Vandeput (@svandeput) 19 октября 2016 г.
On Wednesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry called on the US-led counterterrorist coalition to condemn the deadly airstrike in Syria by one of its allies.
