MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian and Syrian warplanes have not flown closer than 10 kilometers (6.21 miles) of Syria’s Aleppo for nine days, the Russian defense ministry said on Thursday.

Rescue workers and a monitoring group have said air strikes by Syrian or Russian warplanes on Wednesday had killed at least 26 people in a village in the rebel-held province of Idlib, which is in northwest Syria near Aleppo.
