On September 27th 2022, between two and eight civilians were reportedly injured, including an elderly woman and a young man, when a Russian air strike hit a refugee camp in the Kalbid area, near the Bal al-Hawa border crossing in Syria.
One Syrian Civil Defense volunteer, Hamza Al-Jassem, stated after being at the scene, “it is a difficult feeling that death is chasing you even in the last place.”
Step News reported that the Russian airstrike targeted a military site belonging to a Turkish-backed Syrian opposition faction, which calls itself “Army of God”, near the Syrian-Turkish border. There were reportedly four missiles, and one missile fell into the vicinity of the refugee camp.
Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that shrapnel from the bombardment wounded four civilians on the main road near the base in the area. It also reported that the attack caused “panic and terror among the internally displaced people, especially students in the camps, as the missile strike was around school hours.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
