A grab from a Homs Media Centre video released on September 30, 2015 shows smoke billowing from buildings and a minaret in Talbisseh in Homs provinceRussian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Francois Hollande were gearing up for talks on the Syrian conflict on Friday, as tensions rose after Moscow unleashed a fresh wave of bombing over Syrian soil. Russia says its airstrikes are against the Islamic State group (IS), and have so far hit five targets belonging to the jihadists, but Washington has disputed this and argues they are in fact aimed at supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Pentagon held what they said were “cordial and professional” talks with Russian officials on Thursday in a bid to avoid mishaps between the two military powers in the region.
