Six named civilians died in an air or artillery strike on Al Mansoura in the western suburbs of Aleppo, local sources said.
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, on “Wednesday evening 3 August 2016, alleged Russian warplanes carried out two airstrikes on the residential homes located in the northwestern areas of Al Mansoura town, located in the western suburbs of Aleppo governorate – an under the control of armed opposition factions – resulting in the killing of six individuals (four children and two women) most of whom were from the same family.”
SN4HR, however, was the only source directly blaming Russia; others didn’t apportion blame, meaning that the regime can’t be ruled out. Furthermore, some sources stated that there had also been artillery shelling on Al Mansoura on this day.
No one else was reported injured.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
