The Russian Defence Ministry said on Tuesday that Russian and Syrian military planes had not launched any air strikes on Aleppo in the last seven days, contradicting a monitor who says frontline areas in the city have been bombed since Saturday.

In a statement, Major-General Igor Konashenkov said flights over Aleppo by the Russian and Syrian air forces have been completely halted for the last seven days.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says there have been no deaths from air strikes inside residential eastern Aleppo since the ceasefire officially began last Thursday.
