BEIRUT - Russian jets carried out air strikes on areas in western Syria on Saturday and an Islamic State stronghold in the north was rocked by a large explosion, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

Russia, a top ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, started bombing in Syria on Sept. 30 saying it was targeting Islamic State militants, a campaign that has drawn Moscow deeper into Syria's more than four-year conflict.

Rebels on the ground and Western states have said Moscow's air campaign, which has been combined with ground attacks by pro-government forces, have mainly targeted rebel groups not associated with Islamic State, including US-trained fighters.
