Russia slams US airstrikes as poorly planned in Syria

Russia has criticized the airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition in Syria as ill-conceived and poorly planned. Zakharova made the remark in a statement to the press in the Russian capital, Moscow. She also said the coalition’s airstrikes have made the situation in Syria worse. Zakharova noted that the number of civilian casualties have increased due to the air raids which started the chaos and destruction. Zakharova argues the airstrikes play into the hands of militants and terrorist organizations, such as DAESH, al-Nusra, and organizations connected to them. A coalition led by the US has acknowledged over 450 civilian deaths since it began its airstrikes in Syria and Iraq in 2014. Airwars, a London-based group that tracks civilian deaths, has put the number at nearly 3,700 since then.
