A civilian was reported killed and five others injured in an alleged attack by an unidentified drone on an agricultural area in the village of Taluna in the vicinity of Ma’arat Misrin city, northern Idlib countryside, on October 31st, 2020. Conflicting sources reported that the drone was Russian, Iranian or from the Syrian regime.
@abo_ayman_saqba reported “a martyr and five wounded when a drone bombed a family while they were working to harvest the olive harvest west of #Maarat_Misrin, north of #Idlib.”
According to Orient News, the bombing coincided with the flight of a Russian reconnaissance plane over Jabal Al Arbaeen, south of Idlib.
According to Syrian Civil Defense, the attack was conducted by a reconnaissance plane believed to be Russian, which targeted an area west of the city of Ma’arat Misrin with bombs equipped with mines intended for detonation with wires.
@Zitan_media blamed the Syrian regime for artillery strikes in the area, but it is unclear if this is the same specific incident as the attack on Taluna.
@NagiNajjar blamed an Iranian drone for the civilian harm, writing: “Southern Idlib, Ma’arat Misrin – a martyr and five wounded due to an Iranian drone targeting a civilian area in the vicinity of Ma’arat Misrin.”
No further information is available at the moment.
