ANKARA (REUTERS) - Turkey condemned Russian air strikes on mosques, hospitals, schools and other civilian buildings in Syria on Thursday (June 9) and said such crimes would not go unpunished.

Russian strikes had been targeting hospitals in the city of Aleppo since Wednesday, the foreign ministry said in a statement, describing such actions as inhumane.
