At least two girls were wounded in alleged Russian or regime artillery shelling of Balion on July 18, 2021.
According to the Syrian Civil Defense, “two girls also suffered a similar bombing on the town of Billion in the countryside”. Syrian Civil Defense was the only source to report on civilian injuries from the shelling while other sources only mentioned that shelling occurred.
Sources were conflicted as to who was responsible for the shelling, with @syr_television blaming the regime while @anasanas84 identified “Russian laser artillery shell”. @iHHDYROQMHnphnS and Syrian Civil Defense attributed the shelling to both Russia and the regime.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
