Airwars assessment

Four to six civilians were reported killed, including three to four children, in airstrikes on Jisr Al Shughour, Idlib, on July 10th.

Numerous sources documented the targeting of residential areas and a hospital. Euphrates Post cited “six victims and a number of wounded civilians, mostly women and children, as a result of the targeting of Jisr al-Shughour, including two air raids with three rockets aimed at residential areas and the city’s hospital, and a double raid targeting civil defense teams and ambulance crews, causing heavy damage.”

Syrian Network for Human Rights also documented the damage to the hospital, and stated that “at least six civilians, most of whom are from the same family – including four children (one male and three female) and a woman – were killed, as Syrian regime warplanes fired missiles on al Jam’iya neighborhood in south of Jisr al Shoghour city, on July 10th.”

Syrian Network for Human Rights names Alaa Ziad Dablou as one of those killed in the airstrike.

Numerous sources refer to ten injured in the attack, including media worker Munir al Hajji, his family, women and children.

Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that “Jisr al Shoghour Surgical Hospital, known as al Kalawi Hospital, supported by Syrian Expatriate Medical Association” was damaged in the incident, which “partially destroyed the building, damaging its equipment and burning its electricity generators.” According to this source, “as a result, the hospital went out of service, on July 10th.”

Two sources attributed the attack to Russian forces, while six others named the Syrian regime as the belligerent responsible for the airstrike. Three other sources did not positively attribute blame, and two sources referred to both the Syrian regime and Russian forces in reporting the incident.

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
