One civilian was reported killed in Al Bab, Aleppo, following suspected airstrikes by the Syrian Regime or Russia. Most sources suspected the Syrian Regime responsible however as Russia were known to be striking in the area they cannot be discounted entirely. @shahba press said “rocket launchers” were employed by Assad whilst the other two sources said “artillery shelling” was the weapon used in the incident.
