Between one and three civilians were killed in the al Maysar neighbourhood of Aleppo following heavy air strikes with cluster bombs, according to local media – though sources were conflicted as to whether Russian warplanes or regime helicopters were to blame.
@ShahbaPress, @Step_Agency, SNN, and @ALAMAWI all tweeted that one civilian was “martyred” in the strikes.
Alsharq said that cluster bombs were used, as did @shahed_alep and the Shaam News Network (SNN). The SNN report mentioned that phosphorus was used in other strikes that day in Aleppo, but was unclear on whether it was used specifically in al Maysar.
According to Alsharq, “many explosive barrels” (a weapon used by the Assad regime) were dropped on al Maysar on this day.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
