U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday the United States and Russia have planned "concrete steps" for the direction they will take in Syria.He also urged Russia to use its influence on Syrian President Bashar Assad to halt Syrian military attacks on opposition groups and civilians. Kerry's conference came as at least 56 civilians were killed in airstrikes north of the besieged city of Manbij held by Daesh (ISIS) in northern Syria, with residents saying they believed the attack was carried out by U.S.-led warplanes, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. In a meeting with the U.N.'s Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura in London, Kerry said it was vital for Moscow to use its influence with the Assad regime to halt its attacks on opposition groups and innocent civilians, which he said were in violation of the cessation of hostilities.Col. Chris Garver, a spokesman for the U.S. coalition against Daesh in Syria and Iraq, said it was looking into reports of civilian deaths but was being "extraordinarily careful to make sure" airstrikes were killing Daesh fighters.
