Three men were killed and 2 others injured after alleged Russian airstrikes on the city of Kafar Nabil, Idlib governorate, on October 28th 2019, according to local sources. It remains contested whether the victims were civilians or militants.
@SyrianCoalition reported that 3 men were killed and 2 injured after Russian warplanes bombed residential neighborhoods of the city. The Syrian Civil Defence reported the same numbers on Facebook, and stated that “Civil Defence teams recovered the bodies of the dead and rescued the injured to nearby medical points”. According to Step News, “vacuum missiles” were used.
The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights recorded the death of 3 “fighters of rebel factions”. A Step News correspondent however reported that all harmed were civilians.
While most sources point to Russia as the belligerent of the incident, Shaam News Agency reported that the Assad regime was responsible for the artillery strikes that killed 3 people, in addition to Russian airstrikes on the city.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
