Airwars assessment

One male baby was named as a victim of an airstrike on Raqqa by some local sources. However, this appears to have been a reporting error – with the child in fact likely to have been killed in a Russian, regime or Coalition airstrike on al Taybeh, east of Palmyra.

MC Palmyra added that members of the baby’s family were also seriously injured in the strike when their home was hit

The local time of the incident is unknown.
