Airwars assessment

A Civil Service Defence Quarter was put out of service when two warplanes fired missiles on Izaz, Aleppo, a town close to the Turkish border in northern Aleppo. Up to  five civilians including a child reportedly died in the attack, which caused extensive destruction to the building and injured several Civil Defence workers.

Ara News blamed the Assad regime for the warplanes.

But  the Syrian Network for Human Rights and Aleppo24 blamed Russian warplanes for the bombardment on the area.

According to Syrian Press Centre, five civilians were killed in the raid. Several other local news sources also put the numbers killed at five including SRG_Syria. LCCSY put the death toll slightly lower at two.

The Syrian Coalition tweeted that there had been “more than 60 martyrs and dozens of wounded in Aleppo today due to warplanes shelling.”

The local time of the incident is unknown.
