At least one child was injured in alleged Russian or regime or Iranian shelling of Taqad on August 23, 2021.
According to the Syrian Civil Defense, a child was injured during artillery shelling of the village of Taqad. All other sources that reported on civilian harm identified one child as being injured in the shelling as well.
Zaman Al Wasl wrote that the child’s injuries were “slight” and that civilian homes were also extensively damaged in the strikes. Activist Ali Haj Suleiman confirmed to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that “a child was wounded by shrapnel in the head and leg as a result of intense artillery shelling.”
Sources were conflicted as to who was responsible for the strikes, with the majority of sources attributing the strikes to the regime while @Almohrar1 blamed Russia and Al Araby pointed to Iranian militias stationed in the “46th Regiment” as being responsible.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
