Palmyra and Russian airstrikes again

PALMYRA WATCH: Russia again carries out airstrikes near ancient Syrian city. Russia's air force says it carried out strikes near the ISIS-held city of Palmyra for the second time this week (Arutz Sheva and AFP). This article confirms that there were Russian airstrikes in the area on Monday, as well as Thursday, but a Russian statement claimed that they only hit targets at considerable distance from the ancient architecture, which contradicts the earlier report.
