One woman possibly died in an airstrike on Mohsen village, according to local media – though it’s currently unclear who was responsible for her death.
None of the sources specifically blamed the Coalition, with many referring only to “warplanes” carrying out strikes on the Al-Zaeem roundabout and the perimeter of Al-Wasat School.
However, Tt1463000 said that regime jets were responsible for the victim’s death. According to Step, the victim was injured and not killed.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that it had “not been identified whether they were Russian warplanes or regime’s warplanes”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
