In an incident previously unknown to Airwars, the Coalition announced on December 1st 2016 that it had assessed a claimed incident ‘near Aleppo’ on May 5th – but that no strikes had been conducted in the vicinity.
According to the Coalition release, “May 5, 2016, near Aleppo, Syria: No Coalition strikes were conducted on that day in the geographical area.”
The only possible external match found by Airwars researchers was a report citing the Syrian Observatory as saying that “a civilian was killed in Western Aleppo due to opposition shelling a few minutes after the beginning of the ceasefire.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
