Airwars assessment

Between one and three civilians including two children died and up to 20 more were wounded in airstrikes on Bazaa village, according to local media. The majority of sources attributed the event to Russia – though there was also one allegation against the Syrian regime.

LCCSY, Syrian Network for Human Rights and Syrian Press Center (SPC) all blamed Russia. SPC said three people died with 20 more injured – including children.

According to the Smart News Network, “Three civilians were killed including two children, and 20 more wounded including women and children in five raids, thought to have been carried out by Russia”.

Only one source, Syrianevent1, blamed the regime for the event – though a number didn’t identify the warplanes responsible.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
