Up to five civilians including three children died and as many as 21 other non-combatants were wounded in an airstrike on Jisr al-Shughur in Aleppo, according to local media – though sources were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Syrian regime were responsible.
The Shaam News Network blamed Russia, reporting: “Activists said Russian warplanes struck the Christian neighbourhood in Jisr al shoughour with several missiles, which led to the death of four people, including three children, and wounding more than 20”.
EMC, SRG and Syrian Press Center also blamed Russia.
However, according to both Orient News and Alsouria, warplanes belonging to the Syrian regime were responsible.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights didn’t identify the warplanes that carried out the attack but said that four people including a woman died, while several more were injured.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
