As a result of the air strike of Russian aviation near the Syrian province of Deir ez Zor, 34 people were killed. This is reported by AFP with reference to the Syrian Monitoring Center for Human Rights.
"On Sunday, as a result of Russian air strikes 34 civilians killed, including 15 children," the report said.
It is noted that Russian aircraft hit the village of Al-Shafah, which is under the control of Islamic state militants.
We recall, Iraqi Prime Minister on July 9 announced the release of the second-largest Iraqi city - Mosul - from the militants of the Islamic State. Islamists also liberated the city of Rakka - the de facto "capital" of militants in Syria.
In early November, the Syrian army announced that it had liberated the last stronghold of the "Islamic state" - the city of Deir ez Zor.
For more than 6 years of war in Syria, according to the UN, more than 450 thousand people were killed. Millions of the country's residents have become refugees.
