Between three and 11 civilians including women and children died and as many as 30 more were wounded in airstrikes on Qaterji, al-Zebdiyyeh, al-Jaloum and Seif al-Dawla, local media reported – though sources were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Assad regime were responsible.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, “11 civilians including five children and two women were killed by an aerial bombardment on Qaterji, Saif al-Dawla, al-Jaloum, and al-Zabdia”.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
