MOSCOW, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- Russian Defense Ministry on Monday denied a report that Russian air strikes had killed dozens of civilians in airstrikes against terrorist targets in the village of Al-Shafah in Syria's eastern Deir al-Zour province.
"The aircraft of the Russian air force were not used against the village of Al-Shafah Cheap Men's Women's Adidas NMD R2 Black White ," the ministry said in a statement, adding that the strikes "are applied outside settlements and exclusively against targets of international terrorist groups."

Footage of a North Korean soldier's defection released Wednesday showed him racing across the border under fire, and then being hauled to safety by South Korean troops.
The 24-year-old soldier Adidas Originals NMD R1 Shoes Light Grey White Outlet , identified only by his surname, Oh, was shot four times in his desperate escape bid at the Panmunjom truce village on November 13.
It is very rare for the North's troops to defect at Panmunjom, a major tourist attraction and the only part of the border where forces from the two sides come face-to-face.
The video released by the UNC began by showing the defector's vehicle traveling at speed along an empty road leading to the truce village before stopping near the heavily armed border.
He then got out of the jeep and ran, pursued by North Korean soldiers with their weapons drawn and firing.
The footage then showed the badly injured man being pulled to safety by two South Korean soldiers who crawled to reach him just south of the dividing line.
