    French authorities have no knowledge regarding the deadly strikes allegedly carried out by Belgian aviation near the Syrian city of Aleppo, French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadale said Wednesday.

    PARIS (Sputnik) — Belgian Defense Minister Steven Vandeput earlier on Wednesday dismissed claims regarding the country's Air Force responsibility for the airstrike on Hassajek.

    "We have no information on this issue," Nadale told reporters.

    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said Tuesday it had received local reports of an airstrike on the Syrian village of Hassajek that killed six people and wounded at least four. According to its bulletin, Russian or Syrian aircraft did not operate in the area at the time of the strike, while air traffic control systems detected two F-16 fighter jets of the Air Force of the Kingdom of Belgium at the time of the strike.

    Belgian F-16 fighter jets are part of the US-led international coalition fighting against terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
