BEIRUT - An intense wave of Russian air strikes hit the Syrian province of Hama and nearby areas in the neighboring province of Idlib on Wednesday, a group monitoring the conflict said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said there were also heavy surface-to-surface missile bombardments.

Russia, a top ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, started carrying out air strikes in Syria last week.
