حاس, Hass, Idlib , Syria

Airwars assessment

Thirteen to sixteen civilians, including children and a pregnant woman, were reported killed in alleged Russian airstrikes on Hass, Idlib, on August 16th.

Euphrates Post reported that “thirteen civilians, including women and children, were killed as a result of airstrikes by Russian warplanes on the homes of displaced persons in the town of Hass.”

Daily Sabah also stated that the “Russian airstrike killed 13 people, including a pregnant woman, and wounded 20 others.” Meanwhile, Etilaf News claimed that the attack killed “14 civilians, including four children, two women, and a fetus, and injured more than 30 others, including serious cases.”

Shaam News also documented the death of 14 in the incident, stating that this included “six children and three women.”

Syria Civil Defense discussed the death of an unborn child, and his mother, in the attack stating that “Hass` fetus was born prematurely weeks before his normal delivery, and in a town that was not his home country. […] He was killed before he was given a name, and all members of his family were killed […], as a result of a Russian warplane bombing gathering of displaced persons [previously] displaced by planes and artillery of the Assad regime and Russia [in Idlib and Hama.]

An early report from @ShabhaPress indicated that there were “up to 11 martyrs and at least 15 wounded” as a result of the airstrike, yet these figures rose in later reports as understanding of the events unfolded.

A later report from Step Agency reported that “a child died as a result of wounds sustained” in the attack a day following, “bringing the death toll in Haas to 16 people.”

Sources predominantly attributed the attack to Russian forces, however, two named both Russia and the Syrian regime in reports of many incidents, including the attack on Hass.

Syria Civil Defense wrote that “the story of Hass’ fetus remains one of the stories that have been dying at the hands of the Russian and Asadi criminals, without any punishment or deterrence, despite violating all international laws and customs.”

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
