At least one civilian was killed and between seven and 15 others were wounded from airstrikes on the village of Teir Ma’ala, specifically a makeshift hospital in the village. The majority of sources attributed the attacks to Russian warplanes, but @Talbisah2011 blamed regime jets.
A local media activist named Kenan Abu Osama described the incident: “I was at home when the observatory in the area announced that Russian warplanes are leaving Hmemeim airbase. At around 1:30 AM the observatory informed everyone that the warplanes had arrived in the northern suburbs of Homs governorate, then we heard the explosion. The warplane fired a missile at a residential area near Abu Bakr Al Sideaq mosque and the makeshift hospital in the village. I went to where the missile was dropped and counted four houses that were destroyed completely. Also, the bathrooms and ablution place of the mosque were destroyed in addition to some of the furniture. Also, the operation room at the makeshift hospital was rendered out of commission after all the equipment were destroyed. I learned that the blind elder from Kousa family died in the attack.”
Madasyria put the death toll at two – while many other sources were unspecific.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
- Hasan Mohammad Al Kousa. 60 years old male blind killed
