Russian airstrikes targeted Tuesday an area in Syria's northern province of Aleppo, killing nine civilians, among them six children, a monitoring group said.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Russian warplanes targeted a farm on the outskirts of the village of Kafar Taal, in the countryside of western Aleppo.
It added that a man, his wife and their six children were among the dead.
The watchdog said Russian planes also targeted areas in the southern and south-eastern countryside of Idlib, inflicting damage to property. The airstrikes are taking place despite a ceasefire which was agreed on by Turkey and Russia earlier this month.
Moscow is an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while Ankara supports the Syrian opposition.
Idlib, in north-western Syria, is the last rebel stronghold in the war-torn country.
Syrian government forces with Russian support began an offensive in the region last year, triggering a massive displacement there.
