A child was killed and two or more civilians injured in an alleged Coalition strike on the village of al Jafil (or less likely al Hakal.)
According to Shaam News “One child was martyred and others wounded when the same planes [as the previous event] bombed the village of al Hakal in the western countryside of the city.”
Amawi News reported that “a child is martyred and four people injured following Coalition raids on the village of al Jakal in the western countryside of Manbij.”
In the second of their March 2020 civilian casualty reports, 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.
