Russia Accuses U.S.-Led Strike of Killing 6 Civilians in Syria

Russia claims that a U.S.-led airstrike has killed six civilians and wounded four others in the Syrian village of Hassajek, in the province of Aleppo. Russian surveillance allegedly saw Belgian F-16 fighter jets in the area at the time of the strike, but a Belgian defense minister has denied that any Belgian aircraft attacked the area. Both Russia and Syria have said they halted airstrikes in anticipation of a “humanitarian pause” in fighting.
