A family of six died in an air or artillery strike on Aleppo’s al Sukkari neighbourhood, according to local media – though sources were conflicted as to whether this was the work of Russia or the Syrian regime.
ZamanAlwasel, Kalimahora and LCCSY blamed Russia, with LCCSY pointing to a vacuum missile attack on a residential building.
However, other sources such as the Syrian Network for Human Rights, the Shaam News Network and AMC, said that the regime was responsible.
According to Alamaiw, “regime helicopters shelled the neighbourhood with gas cylinders”.
Halab Today published an image of “an unexploded missile fired by regime forces” [see image below], reporting that there had been “dozens killed and injured following an intense missile and artillery attack”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
Family members (1)
- Six members of the Al Ahmad family killed
- Jom’a Habon 11 years old injured
- Ahmad Sabbagh 7 years old killed
