Airwars assessment

At least one civilian was injured in alleged Russian or regime airstrikes on al-Kendeh on June 10, 2021.

A tweet from @FdzPWRe6ruAGFPd reported that “a civilian was injured as a result of Russian warplanes targeting the village of Al-Kinda, west of Idlib, in two raids”. @HalabTodayTV also reported that one civilian was injured but attributed the injury to artillery shelling by the regime.

Both @OrientNews and @abo_aljod84 reported that “civilians” were injured but did not give a specific number. Syria TV added that “the bombing resulted in the injury of a number of civilians – whose outcome is unknown – who were taken to medical points in the area”.

Sources were conflicted as to whether Russia or the regime were responsible.

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
