97 Children and Over 400 Syrian Civilians Killed In Russian Air Strikes

When is it going to end? When are we going to throw in the towel and let these people fight their own religious and civil wars.  I understand women, children and innocent people are being trampled on, but are “we” or in this case Russia helping the situation.  For a true revolution to happen it has to come from the people of the country rising up and fighting their own battles.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the death toll from September 30 – when the strikes were launched – until November 20 stood at 403 civilians, a figure that includes 97 children.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR), another monitoring group, said at least 526 were killed, including 137 children, since Russia launched its first air strikes.

Russia’s air force flew 141 sorties and hit 472 targets in over the weekend, the RIA news agency quoted the country’s defense ministry as saying on Monday.

On Sunday, Syrian government air strikes killed at least seven people, including three children, in Douma just outside of the capital Damascus, SOHR said.

Russian and Syrian officials said their jets hit 50 ISIL targets in Deir Az Zor province, the most intense air raids since Russia began its air strikes.
