A reported Russian airstrike on an empty school complex allegedly killed up to a dozen people, according to reports.
Reporting from Sarmin, Orient News reporter Abu Mahmoud described the event: “Russian occupation forces targeted the town of Sarmeen with steric missiles. The target was a children’s school.. they are two schools next to each other, a primary school and a secondary school. Luckily the children had gone home half an hour earlier.”
There are elements of this description which match the previous event at Sarmin, and it appears this incident may have been confused with the former.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
