Russian parachute bomb destroys Syrian village

A video appearing to show a fresh attack on Syria with Russian parachute bombs has emerged online. Footage captures the moment a bomb lands on the Syrian city of Al-Lataminah as a mushroom cloud of smoke bursts skywards. A man recording the footage is heard praying for the souls of those near of the blast.

Russia have launched more than 70 airstrikes since their anti-Islamic State campaign began in September 2015. Jets bombed the villages of Al-Lataminah as well as Kafr Zita and Morek. Military bosses discovered that mines which detonated at roof level could inflict more damage on buildings than bombs which went off on impact
