Airwars assessment

At least one male civilian was killed and between 3 and 10 were wounded by airstrikes on the town of Saraqeb, according to local media. There are however multiple reports of the death of a female child too – she was not named.

Multiple sources, including The Shaam News Network (SNN), identified both regime and Russian warplanes as responsible for the attacks.

However, others sources were split: @EdlaibEMC blamed the regime and Syrian Press Centre pointed to Russia, reporting that there were eight strikes, wounding three civilians.

Zaitonmag and the White Helmets reported that after the initial bombing of the residential neighbourhood, as the civil defence team was rescuing the wounded, they were struck with bombs, resulting in the injury of three crew members.

Radio AlKul reported that in addition to one death “dozens” more non-combatants were wounded.
