One woman died in an airstrike on Kafr Tkharim and the surrounding countryside on the August 2nd, according to sources on the ground. Most sources attributed the event to Russia, though one said that barrel bombs had been dropped on the area, meaning that regime involvement can’t be ruled out.
LCCSY and Baladi Network both declared it was Russian aviation which destroyed the neighbourhood. Syrian PC reported “heavy bombardment” of the area. Photographic evidence showed heavy material damage of the area.
LCCSY and other sources said that only one woman died in the raid, but her name was not given.
Ara News stated that multiple sources believed that several more civilians were wounded. The White Helmets released a Youtube video showing material damage including fire. It also stated that barrel bombs were used – a weapon used by the regime – and highlighted that the incident occurred in the late hours of the evening. Other photographic evidence showed injured children.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
