Baladi News reported that six civilians, including a woman, were injured when more than five shells struck residential neighborhoods in Ariha after midnight Wednesday-Thursday. Two of the civilians with serious injuries were transferred to Bab Al-Hawa Hospital.
Sources were conflicted as to whether Russia, the regime, or Iran was responsible for the strikes. Baladi News pointed to the regime forces and the militias supporting them stationed in the city of Saraqib as being responsible for the shelling, adding that the shelling coincided with Russian reconnaissance of the area and the passage of several Turkish vehicles on the Aleppo-Lattakia International Highway.
