In a report which may be confused in part with event CS390 in Maarat, warplanes struck Marat – apparently for the second time in 24 hours – killing up to five civilians.
Free Deir Ezzor Radio reported that “warplanes launch two raids targeting the villages of Marat – the raids were in the same area as the massacre yesterday. Until now there are five martyrs.” The same source also reported that the attack killed “the martyr Yasser Ahmad Thabet al Darwish and four unidentified martyrs who happened to be passing in the high street in Mrat at the time of the raid launched by warplanes noon today.”
The named victim’s details closely resembled those of a reported victim of the previous day’s strike.
Euphrates Post instead reported “one martyr and four wounded some of them in a critical condition after warplanes targeted the house of Ahmad al Darwish this afternoon.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
- Yasser Ahmad Thabet al Darwish Age unknown male killed
