Airwars assessment

Between one and six civilians were killed and others were wounded in alleged Russian or regime strikes on Daraa al-Balad on July 29, 2021.

According to Syria TV, “the death toll of civilians as a result of the bombing of the neighborhoods of Daraa al-Balad by the regime forces has risen to two after the death of the young man, Yazan Adnan al-Mutlaq al-Muhaisen al-Mahamid, was confirmed. This morning, shelling the besieged neighborhoods of Daraa al-Balad with artillery and high-explosive “elephant” missiles killed the young Ahmed Farhan Aktifan.”

Ikhwan Online posted on their Facebook that Issam Muhammad Al-Masri was also killed in Daraa al-Balad.

Al-Majs Agency reported that only one civilian was killed and others were injured. However, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights identified “a man and a child” as being killed in Daraa al-Balad. Horan Free Media gave the toll as “6 martyrs and the fall of many civilians wounded” and @freedom4daraa reported that five civilians were killed.

A tweet from @freedom4daraa identified Muhammad Yusuf al-Mahamid as also being killed in the strikes but classified him as a “fighter”.

Syria TV also reported that others were wounded and “the people of the neighborhood issued a distress call for the lack of any first aid materials after the closure of the only medical point in the neighborhood yesterday, as a result of being targeted by the “Fourth Division” snipers.” @shaimaalshariif added that the medical point had previously been targeted by Russian/Iranian forces.

The strikes came after “the negotiating committees in Daraa al-Balad submitted a final proposal to the Assad regime, threatening in the event of its rejection of displacement or war and confrontation, after a meeting held between the negotiating committees and representatives from the “Eighth Brigade” of the “Fifth Corps” linked to Russia”, reported Syria TV.

A source told Al Hurra that “artillery, missile and mortar shelling are still continuing on neighborhoods in which nearly 50,000 civilians live” at the time of reporting. Al Rafidin reported that “regime forces are trying to storm Daraa al-Balad from three axes, while the people of the area are confronting them, as violent clashes are taking place amid intense artillery shelling that targets houses and roads in the city”.

The majority of sources identified the strikes as being carried out by the regime. However, Syrian Civil Defense attributed strikes across Dara’a as being from regime and Russian forces.

Baladi News and other sources identified “elephant missiles” and/or surface to surface missiles as being used in the strikes.

The incident occured in the morning.

Airwars assessment

Between five and six civilians, including three to five children and a woman, were killed and at least one other civilian was injured in alleged Russian or regime strikes on al-Yadouda on July 29, 2021.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, “a woman and her little son and three other children in al-Yadouda” were killed. Syrian Network for Human Rights also reported that five civilians were killed from the same family, including three children and a woman while @DaraaMartyrsOF identified that among the five killed included “a man, a woman and 3 children from the same family”.

Syrian Civil Defense put the toll of civilians killed a six, including “4 children, their mother and another child” and NPA Syria also identified “a woman and five children” as being killed.

A video posted by Horan Free Media shows the mother of three of the children saying goodbye to them as they’re wrapped in white sheets.

A tweet from @NagiNajjar identified the names of the victims: Nahla Al-Zoubi (wife of Ibrahim Al-Zoubi) (F), Hamza Ibrahim Al-Zoubi (M), Baraa Ahmed Rakan Al-Zoubi (M), child Mohammed Ahmed Rakan Al-Zoubi (M), and girl Ritaj Ahmed Rakan Al-Zoubi (M). @chessrabaa confirmed that Ritaj, Muhammad, and Bara’a were siblings, the children of Ahmed Rakan Al-Zoubi.

A post from Suliman Al Zou’bi added that Sari Abd al-Rahman al-Zoubi was also killed in the strikes.

@NagiNajjar also identified Hamza Ibrahim Al-Zoubi as being the child of Nahla Al-Zoubi, both of whom were killed.

Horan Free Media was not able to provide an estimate of how many were wounded, only identifying “a number of wounded”. Syria TV added that “the young man, “Samer Al-Hammadi” from the “Al-Sad” road, was also wounded by the bombing.

Daraa 24 reported that the civilians were killed when their house collapsed on them while they were inside.

Syrian Civil Defense identified surface to surface missiles as being used in the attack while Horan Free Media reported that “a number of “elephant” missiles” led to the massacre.

According to Horan Free Media, the strikes also led to a “large displacement movement” following the strike as many residents of al-Yadouda fled the town for fear of future strikes of that severity.

The majority fo sourced attributed the strikes to the regime and NPA Syria specifically identified “the 285th Artillery Brigade of the government forces, which is stationed on the northern outskirts of Daraa city” as carrying out the attack. @omar_alharir posted a video alleged to show the regime forces launching the rockets that struck al-Yadouda. However, Syrian Civil Defense identified both Russia and the regime as carrying out strikes on the Dara’a countryside.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
