Russia to launch new strikes in 'coming hours'

World Bulletin / News Desk

Russia is preparing to resume air strikes around the Syrian city of Aleppo "in coming hours", the Interfax news agency cited a source in the Russian Defence Ministry as saying.

The Kremlin said on Monday Russia's air force would maintain a moratorium on strikes in Aleppo unless militants launched an offensive.

 A Russian frigate capable of firing cruise missiles at targets up to 370 miles (600km) docked in the Syrian port of Latakia on Tuesday morning, ahead of what intelligence sources and rebels say is a new attack on Aleppo timed for when the world’s attention is focused on the US election.
