Belgian airstrikes killed six civilians during bombardments above the Syrian town of Hassajek (Aleppo region) on October 18th.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders and Minister of Defense Steven Vandeput strongly deny the various and repeated accusations brought forward in the Russian media, as well as by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, in relation to alleged airstrikes by Belgian Air Force aircraft at the Hassadjek village in the Aleppo region in the night of 17 to 18 October 2016. No Belgian Air Force aircraft have been operating over the Aleppo province over the last few days. These accusations are therefore totally groundless and unsubstantiated. bit.ly/2duZJQr,
