The Euphrates Post reported “The martyrdom of Ali Hamoud al-Tarihah and the wounding of Saleh al-Badri as a result of air raids by the international coalition that targeted his home in the area of Al Diyaf in the town of Abu Hamam”.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights also blamed the Coalition for the victim’s death, as did Asharqi News Network.
In June 2019 the Coalition announced that it had assessed this allegation of civilian harm as non-credible, noting “After a review of all available strike records it was determined that, more likely than not, civilian casualties did not occur as a result of a Coalition strike.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
- Ali Hamoud al-Tarihah Age unknown male killed
- Saleh al-Badri Age unknown injured
