    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Russian Defence Ministry has refuted foreign media reports about Russia's strikes on a hospital and a bakery on the outskirts of Syria's Idlib.

    "Reports by certain foreign media outlets about a bombing attack, allegedly conducted by the Russian Aerospace Forces' aircraft in the morning of January 30 on 'a hospital and a bakery' near the Ariha settlement on the southern outskirt of the Syrian town of Idlib, are an information provocation. The Russian aviation has not implemented any combat assignment in this area of Syria," the Russian Defence Ministry said.

    Foreign media reports, released earlier in the day, claim that 10 civilians were killed in the attack.
