A 10 year-old child named Jamil Mustafa was killed in an alleged Russian airstrike on Aleppo’s Al Ferdos neighbourhood, according to LCCSY.

Despite this claim, a pro-regime Twitter page reported that “Syrian warplanes targeted armed groups in Ferdos and Kallaseh neighbourhoods and injured some armed members.”

Step News reported sighting helicopters which threw explosive barrels on the neighbourhood.

BNN_2016 added that not only Ferdos but Sukkari and Sheikh Sa’id were also hit in the raids.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
