GENEVA - At least 120,000 people were displaced in Syria's Aleppo, Hama and Idlib governorates - the center of the Russian-backed Syrian government offensive - this month, the United Nations said on Monday, more than doubling an earlier estimate of 50,000.

More than six million Syrians have been displaced in the four-year-old civil war.

Russia says it has destroyed more than 800 terrorist targets in Syria since it began its campaign of air strikes on September 30, an intervention Moscow claims is aimed at destroying extremist Islamic insurgents, but which Washington says is also targeting moderate rebels opposed to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
