Russian jets have launched 18 attacks inside Syria over the last 24 hours, according to the country's official news agency, despite international concern about the military campaign.

According to the spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Russia had "conducted 18 sorties against 12 facilities of the Islamic State terrorist group.

But international officials and some people inside Syria doubt that Russia is limiting its attacks to ISIS.

Friday marks the third day Russia has carried out airstrikes in Syria.
