Amnesty Int'l Says Russian Airstrikes Are Killing Civilians In Syria

Amnesty International says Russian airstrikes in Syria have killed at least 200 civilians in recent months and suggested those actions could amount to war crimes.

From Sept. 30 to Nov. 29, the human rights monitor says Russia's bombing campaign also destroyed residential areas and medical facilities, among other public places.

The report also accuses Russian authorities of attempting to "cover up civilian damage" in two separate attacks. (Video via Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation)

Russia claims its air raids are only targeting ISIS and what it considers other terrorist groups.
