Between one and two civilians were killed and an unspecified number of others were wounded in alleged Russian or regime artillery shelling of the village of Ain Larouz on November 24, 2021.
The Nedaa Post correspondent reported the killing of two civilians after targeting the village of “Ain Larouz” in Jabal Al-Zawiya with “Krasnopol” laser missiles, while the civil defense teams worked for many hours to retrieve the dead and wounded from under the rubble.
Macro Media Center also mentioned that civilians were injured from the shelling by regime forces but did not specify how many. @hadikhraat put the death toll at one civilian killed and also blamed the regime forces.
Al-Tariq’s correspondent identified that the civilians that were wounded had sustained wounds of varying degrees of severity.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights referred to those killed as being “Turkestans”, adding that it was unknown whether they were fighters or their family members.
Hibr Press reported that in addition to the two people killed and others wounded, houses were destroyed and Baladi News also pointed out that a mosque was affected by the shelling. A Facebook post from Abo kotar described “extensive damage”.
Sources were conflicted as to whether the regime or Russian forces were responsible, with @ShamAlmagd1991 blaming Russia while @IdlibPlus identified the regime and North Press Agency specifically pointed to the regime forces stationed in the Jorin camp. Multiple sources pointed out that Krasnopol shells were used in the attack.
The incident occured in the afternoon.
