A young child was killed in either a Coalition or a Russian airstrike near Al Dadat, on the road to Jarablus.
Ara News blamed the attack on Russia, while Shaam News and Halab Today among others said the US-led Coalition was responsible.
In their February 2020 civilian casualty report, the US-led Coalition assessed reports that they were responsible for civilian harm in this strike as “non-credible”, stating that no Coalition actions were conducted in the geographical area at that time.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
