Sixty-two Syrian soldiers were killed and over 100 injured in the airstrike by the US-led coalition, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said, citing information received from the Syrian General Command.
“If the airstrike was caused by the wrong coordinates of targets than it’s a direct consequence of the stubborn unwillingness of the American side to coordinate with Russia in its actions against terrorist groups in Syria,” Konashenkov stressed.
"Immediately after the airstrike by coalition planes, Islamic State militants launched their offensive. Fierce fighting with the terrorists is currently underway in the area of the airport where for a long a time humanitarian aid for civilians was parachuted,” Konashenkov said. The Syrian General Command has called the bombing a “serious and blatant aggression” against Syrian forces, and said it was "conclusive evidence" that the US and its allies support IS militants.

I have no idea why the russians fall for this "ceasefire" scam every time, it is merely to allow isis/daesh/al nusra to regroup and re-arm, Every single time these rats are about to be annihilated for good, we get john kerry or some other damp squib doing the rounds begging for a ceasefire, Russia, for the love of god JUST OBLITERATE THESE SCUMBAGS once and for all.
