At least 370 people, including 127 civilians, are believed to have died in three weeks of Russian airstrikes in Syria, according to the activist monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

SOHR said it had documented hundreds of airstrikes since Russia launched its military campaign in Syria on September 30. It showed that at least 370 people had died in Russian airstrikes, including 127 civilians and 243 fighters belonging to groups including the Islamic State (ISIS), al-Nusra, and rebels fighting against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The figures provided by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights could not be independently verified.

The observatory claimed Russian forces are carrying out airstrikes without distinguishing between civilian and military targets, a claim Moscow denies.
