Russian Airstrikes in Syria Hit Targets in ISIS-Controlled Area

MOSCOW — The Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday that it had bombed seven targets in Syria in overnight air raids, including a command post and a training camp near the northwestern city of Raqqa that would be the first strike in an area widely recognized as being under the control of the Islamic State.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry issued a joint statement on Friday by Britain, France, Germany, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United States, calling on Russia to stop targeting the opposition groups they have been supporting and warning that such attacks would feed radicalism and extremism.
