One man was killed and his wife and four children were injured in an alleged Syrian regime or Russian artillery strikes in the night of February 4th to February 5th, 2020, according to local sources.
The Syrian Civil Defence reported that “Mr. Ahmad Rostom was killed and his family – his wife and four children were injured – due to artillery shelling by the regime forces, which targeted their house in the town of Ainjara in Aleppo countryside, at midnight on Tuesday”.
However, Step News Agency later reported that one of the injured women died on February 5th as the results of her wounds.
Whereas some sources stated the artillery strikes were carried out by the Syrian regime, other sources did not specify a belligerent. Shaam News Network blamed both the Syrian regime and Russia. Due to Russia being an active belligerent in the area, Airwars has graded this incident as contested.
The incident occured around midnight.
