Suppose it's 'good' news; at least we wouldn't know for sure that it was a mistake and not someone's idea of a litmus test for some further provocation.
From you nothing will surprise me.. you are very quick to blame Russian government
for anything before accepting any claim the west lies about anything that happens in conflicts they create . I still remember how you blamed Russia for the mH17 plane in ukraine. As if Russia did not have ways to know the difference between a civilian airliner and a combat plane. Now the west claims Russia cannot know the difference between Raqqa and a military base
of the Syrian army.
First of all - you're on my ignore list
Secondly - the thing is, I'm usually correct. Not all of the time, but 70-80%. So if you don't like what I'm saying, you don't like the probable truth.

I found the location of the strike at 2:15.
Admittedly, I looked for it because I though it could possibly be the location of the US airstrike on the SAA north of DEZ due to the proximity to the river. Fortunately it was in Raqqa.
Here to be exact, ~500ft from a mosque: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.921621&lon=38.978055&z=16&m=b
Good work...seems like the right place
Hard to say. It might not be the buildings that they were targeting; especially if they were going for area damage against nearby personnel and equipment.
Those bombs we see dropping are the lightest ones in service AFAIK; they are probably not going to be that effective against buildings (for which different bombs might be used), but will create a lot of fragmentation/shrapnel, and when taking into account their number - they will cover quite a wide area.
