Russia accuses U.S. of often not striking terrorist targets in Syria

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian defense ministry on Wednesday reacted to Washington’s criticism of its air campaign in Syria by accusing the U.S. air force of not always bombing Islamic State militants itself.

“The American and other air forces have been carrying out strikes for a year already,” said Major-General Igor Konashenkov, according to the RIA Novosti news agency.

“But we have grounds to believe that they have not always ... been striking terrorist targets.”
