Russian warplanes target Hama and Idlib province

Explosions across Syria’s Hama province.

Amateur video which can not be independently verified by Reuters appears to show Russia on the offensive in Syria.

More footage shows panic on the streets near the Turkish border in a country where war has already claimed the lives of some 250,000 people.

Jets believed to be Russian target a depot for trucks waiting to go through a major rebel controlled border crossing.

Syrian jets have struck that area before. But if confirmed to have been carried out by Russia, it would be one of Moscow’s closest air strikes to Turkish territory — targeting a humanitarian corridor into rebel-held Syria and an important transit point for Syrian civilians crossing to Turkey.

Earlier in the week Turkey shot down a Russian jet, which it said entered its air space. Russia said the plane had not left Syrian air space.
