Airwars assessment

On October 29th, 2022, after midnight, one civilian, a woman, was reportedly killed, and two others injured, a man and a child, as a result of an alleged SDF or Syrian regime missile strike on their house in Kuwait Al-Rahman IDP camp, in Afrin countryside, in Aleppo governorate.

Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) identified the woman killed as 30-years-old Samira Mohammad al-Hussein Kerzak. One local source added that she was displaced, and originally from Damascus. Sources described the victims as part of the same family, and the injured as Samira Mohammad al-Hussein Kerzak’s husband and her child. Syria Civil Defense (SCD) reported that two children from the same family also suffered from ‘psychological trauma’ as they saw their mother killed by the strike. Masar Press News indicated that the child injured was a young girl, while @77Mikiy claimed that it was a 6-months infant. The injured were reportedly transported by SCD workers to Afrin hospital to receive first aid. However, according to Abdul Hadi Abu Muhammad, director of Kuwait Al-Rahma camp, interviewed by Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, the infant was transfered to Turkey due to critical injuries.

Some sources claimed that the strike was conducted by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) while others said Syrian regime forces were responsible for the bombing. SCD reported that the bombing came from areas under the control of both the Syrian regime, Russian forces and the SDF. The Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that a rocket launcher was used in the attack. Abdul Hadi Abu Muhammad, director of Kuwait Al-Rahma” camp, interviewed by Al-Araby Al-Jadeed stated that “at two o’clock after midnight on Friday, two missiles landed inside the camp”.Afrin Post claimed that 6 rockets, fired from al-Shahba area, hit Al-Rahman camp.

Following the strike, SCD observed the displacement of a large number of families and described a ‘state of panic’ inside the camp.

The same source claimed that during the month of October, Kuwait Al-Rahman IDP camp and nearby Wadi Al-Hamam camp were bombed 5 times.

The incident occured at 02:00:00 local time.

The victims were named as:

Between nine to seventeen civilians were killed, including five to six children, and 26 to 42 others were injured, including eleven children, as a result of missile fire which hit a “crowded” marketplace and residential homes and a school in Al Bab city, Aleppo, Syria, on August 19th 2022. The missile fire was an alleged Syrian regime or SDF (PYD/PKK) action.  Local sources were reporting the event as the “Al Bab massacre” due to the high death toll.

One of the missiles hit the four way intersection known as Khamis Local Market in Al-Bab’s Al Sharqi neighbourhood, according to Syrian Network for Human Rights.

MMC reported that the death toll rose to 14 with up to 38 wounded including five civilians who remained unidentified.

One woman who was killed was allegedly displaced from Deir ez-Zor governorate. Another civilian reportedly killed, Tayseer Ramadan, was reportedly displaced from Maarat al-Numan. The Syrian Civil Defense reported that the area, Al Bab, has become “the last refuge for thousands of families that have been displaced by the regime forces and Russia and are living in an acute humanitarian crisis.”

MMC reported that the Director of the Media Center of the Syrian Democratic Forces, Farhad Shami said, “our forces have nothing to do with the bombing of the city of Al-Bab”, denying the responsibility of the PYD/PKK.  Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that six missiles hit the town of Al Bab and they have so far been unable to identify the source of the missiles. They believe that it is a result of either Syrian regime forces or by the Syrian Democratic Forces due to the location of the strike, coming from areas jointly controlled by both actors.

One volunteer from the Syrian Civil Defense reported, “everything is stained with blood, the smell of death is everywhere, the scene is very harsh, people, body parts and children, they are all people descending looking for their livelihood…it is clear that the criminal who bombed the city aimed to kill the largest number of civilians and children, because a missile targeted a school, and thank God, today is a holiday, otherwise the tragedy would have been greater.”

The incident occured during the day.
