Kremlin, on Syria strikes, says hard to distinguish between rebel groups

MOSCOW – The Kremlin said on Friday it was hard to distinguish between moderate and Islamist extremist rebels on the ground when it came to targeting air strikes in Syria because they were frequently fighting close to one another. A Kremlin spokesman made the comments when asked to comment on allegations from a senior unnamed US defence official who accused Russian forces in Syria of bombing US-backed rebels. The same spokesman also dismissed a letter from US officials calling for US strikes on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, saying any attempt at regime change in Syria would plunge the entire region into chaos.
