"The information that has appeared in some Russian media with a reference to so-called military sources on Russia allegedly launching airstrikes in Idlib does not correspond to reality", the ministry said.
The newspaper Kommersant reported, citing sources earlier in the day, that the Russian Aerospace Forces had launched airstrikes on Idlib as a response to terrorists' violating the ceasefire. According to the media outlet, the alleged airstrikes had been agreed on with Ankara.
The militants have repeatedly shelled settlements in the north of the neighbouring provinces of Hama and Latakia, causing civilian casualties, in defiance of the ceasefire regime established in the area.
