At least woman was reportedly injured by an alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrike or artillery attack on Kafr Nabl in Idlib, Syria, on November 30th 2019.

The media source Kefranbell.com identified the victim as the wife of the “martyr” Waheb al-Obeidu. A number of sources claimed that several civilians had been injured without specifying the number.

Resalapost reported the town was hit by “successive” raids. According to Alhadth, a total of four raids were conducted on the town. While most sources blame the attack on the Russian military, some attributed the attack to the Syrian regime as well.

Video footage shows the destruction of several buildings in the aftermath of the attack.
