Videos and images have been released today following an alleged Russian airstrike on the Syrian city of Douma [1,2,3,4,5]. At least 11 citizens are rumored to be dead, with more wounded, according to multiple unconfirmed reports. [6,7]
If it was indeed Russia, this airstrike marks another in the chain of many attacks Russia has been carrying out in support of the Assad regime, and not the first to kill civilians — not by a longshot. Only last month, Russian airstrikes left 185 citizens dead, more than even ISIS killed last month (131), with over half being women and children, according to statistics published by the Syrian Observatory For Human Rights. Russian airstrikes last month additionally killed 243 Syrian rebels  from various factions within a period of 20 days, indicating more plainly than ever that Putin seems more concerned with killing any and all rebels as long as they threaten his ally, Assad, than focusing on one particular group. This is in continuation of Assad’s score of ordnance strikes, one of which was responsible for over 100 deaths last month, also in Douma.
