Multiple media reported that three civilians, including two women, were killed and up to ten more were wounded following aerial shelling of the village of al-Zafriya, Hama, though it was unclear among the sources who carried out the strikes.
Multiple sources reported from the incident, echoing the same thing; namely that three civilians were killed and at least two and as many as ten were left injured.
Baladi News’ correspondent said that “Russian aircraft carried out several raids this morning [Oct 10th] on residential neighbourhoods in the village of al-Zafria of Al-Hamra district of the eastern countryside of Hama, killing three civilians and injuring several other civilians who were left in a critical condition.”
The Facebook account Bawaba.Hamah identified the names of the three victims as well as four of the wounded. All seven people shared the same last name, suggesting they were related.
Sources were not clear in terms of when the incident occurred. While Baladi News’s correspondent reported that the shelling took place in the morning, Bawaba.Hamah said it took place in the afternoon.
While sources attributed blame to Russia, the Syrian Network for Human Rights identified “Syrian-Russian alliance warplanes” as the culprit.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
