Russia launched a new aerial bombardment on Syrian rebels, helping President Bashar al-Assad's government reclaim territory it had lost.
As with recent sorties, Russia described the targets as belonging to Islamic State insurgents. But most of the positions have not been held by that group, but rather factions fighting the Assad government.
