Does Syrian opposition suffer of Russian bombing?

Russia has started bombing of ISIL with overwhelming speed. On Monday Obama and Putin discussed situation in Syria, and on Wednesday Russian forces attacked Islamic State. Situation in Syria changed rapidly, many politicians and journalists were confused, and various gossips spread on the speed comparable to Russian military aircrafts. Some bloggers state Russia is bombing not ISIL but Syrian opposition united in so called Free Syrian army. First of all its existing is questioned now. Free Syrian army permanently split and some of its unites officially left it and some of them officially joint ISIL.
The mane source of these statements is distortion of officials’ words. For example:
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter told: “I want to be careful about confirming information, but it does appear that they (Russian airstrikes) were in areas where there probably were not ISIL forces”.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said: “We’ll need to look very carefully at the reports and exactly what has happened. I have a clear view that if this is a part of international action against Isil, that appalling terrorist death cult outfit, then that is all to the good… If, on the other hand, this is action against the Free Syrian Army in support of Assad the dictator, then obviously that is a retrograde step but let us see exactly what has happened.”

In the same time US officials demand evidence from Russia that it does not bombing Syrian opposition. This demand proves that US intelligence services have not collected any exact data on this subject yet.
