Between two and seven civilians died in an alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrike on Tareeq Al Bab, according to sources on the ground.

Radio Alkul gave the lowest death count of two with three more wounded – from the same family, blaming Russia.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights said that four died, including a child and a woman, and blamed the regime – though in a separate post it published an image of a man and said that Russia was responsible for his death.

According to Alaraby, six people died after a barrel bomb was dropped from a regime helicopter.

Egypt Today said that as many as seven were killed.

There are multiple reports that “dozens” were injured, with no specific numbers.
