One civilian died and at least three were injured in airstrikes on Al Zubari, according to local media – though it was unclear who carried out the attack. Most sources didn’t apportion blame, though one said that Russia had bombed the town.
According to the Smart News Agency, “a civilian was killed and others were wounded in shelling on the town of Zubari, Southeast of Deir Ezzor. This was in addition to the demolition of a large number of houses and displacement of residents along the bank of the Euphrates River.”
Amer Hweidi reported, “a number of air raids targeted al-Zubari village near al-Tawba mosque, Al Sharjeen neighborhood and Al Ashawi shops, resulting in the death of a displaced person and the injury of Shihat Al ‘Eleij, Bariz al-Ashawi and his nephew Shaher.”
Euphrates Post said there had been a large number of injured people but like Amer Hweidi didn’t say who carried out the attack.
Qasioun said Russia carried out strikes on the town but did not mention civilian casualties.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
