At least one civilian was injured by alleged Syrian regime or Russian artillery shelling of Al Abzimo on October 6, 2022.

The @SyriaCivilDefe reported that a civilian was injured by artillery shelling launched by the Syrian regime and Russian forces. @HalabTodayTV referred to “civilians” as being wounded without specifying how many while @alaskari_media reported that “several civilians” were injured. All of the other sources referred to “civilian casualties” without further information.

The majority of sources, including @HalabTodayTV, attributed the shelling to Syrian regime forces while @Syrian_Kasura referred to “ro-Assad forces” as carrying out the shelling. However, @Almohrar1 blamed “the militias of the Russian occupation” and the @SyriaCivilDefe referred to both the Syrian regime and Russian forces.
