At least five civilians – from the same family, according to some reports – died and up to eight more were wounded in airstrikes on Orme Al-Kubra, local media reported. The majority of sources attributed the event to Russia – though one, the Syrian Network for Human Rights, blamed the Syrian regime.
According to LCCSY, “five civilians were killed and others were injured as a result of Russian aircraft launching two airstrikes with vacuum missiles on residential neighborhoods in the town of Orme Al-Kubra”.
Syrian News Desk, also blaming Russia, put the death toll at six, including one child, adding that 10 more civilians were wounded in an attack “on the the town centre which resulted in widespread destruction”.
AMC and @aleppopress said that five people from one family died.
However, the Syrian Network for Human Rights said that the regime was responsible, while a report by Slnnews referred to both Russia and regime actions on the town.
Many reports added that civilians remained trapped under the rubble.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
