According to local sources, an alleged Coalition airstrike targeted Al Sha’afa and killed one civilian man.
The Youth of al Soussa reported that Ali Jassim Mohammed Al Furaiji died in “treacherous raids” on the town, though did not specify a culprit.
Hajin News and the Syrian Observatory blamed the US-led Coalition. According to the Syrian Network, Mr al Furaji died when “International Coalition forces warplanes fired missiles on al Sh’afa city.”
In its October 2020 monthly civilian casualty review, the US-led Coalition classed this event as ‘non credible’, asserting that “This report contains insufficient information on time, location, or details to assess its credibility.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
