Syrian Observatory: Russian air strikes hit southwest Syria

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitoring group said on Wednesday that Russian air strikes had targeted southwest Syria for the first time in four days, hitting the rebel-held towns of Tafas and Saida.

Earlier on Wednesday a rebel spokesman said talks between insurgents and Russia to stop fighting in the southwest had failed after a government offensive there.
