Two non-combatant males were killed in an alleged Russian strike on Tahtaya and were later named by the Violations and Documentation Centre.
Syrian regime aircraft also reportedly bombed the town the day before, killing a woman and her daughter.
However according to Qasioun – which posted a video of the attack – the event was the work of Syrian regime aircraft which used a barrel bomb and exploding gas cylinders.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
