White House says Pentagon reviewing Russia strikes, targets

The White House said on Wednesday it was too early to tell what targets Russian military strikes were hitting inside Syria but it was clear Moscow was ramping up support for President Bashar al-Assad. “The Department of Defense is obviously reviewing the ongoing Russian military activity inside of Syria,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a news briefing. “It’s too early for me to say exactly what targets they were aiming at and what targets were eventually hit,” Earnest said. There have been conflicting reports on whether the Russian attacks were aimed at supporting Assad or targeting Islamic State in that country.
