They’re retaliating. Russia came out swinging this morning over Turkish allegations that Moscow was involved in airstrikes on medical facilities and schools that killed at least 50 in northern Syria. French and Turkish officials say the attacks should be deemed war crimes, and U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon said they violated international law. Adding fuel to the fire, Bashar Assad shed doubt on the planned truce. “Ceasefires occur between armies and states, but never between a state and terrorists,” he said, noting the difficulty of holding “terrorists” accountable.
