Three civilians were reported killed in an airstrike on Bab al Nairab on August 1st, 2016, according to multiple sources – though reports were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Assad regime were to blame.
LCCSY reported that three civilians were killed and several others wounded “due to the targeting of Bab Nairab neighbourhood at dawn [Aug 1st] with vacuum missiles by Russian warplanes.”
HNN [YouTube link] also reported the incident and blamed Russia. It stated that the “airstrike after midnight turned Bab Neirab neighbourhood houses into lonely stones” and led to the death of three people, including a child, and left ten wounded.
