Airwars assessment

An unspecified number of civilians died and seven were wounded in an alleged Russia or Assad regime airstrike on Aleppo’s Al Salhin neighbourhood, according to local media.

LCCSY said Russia carried out strikes, though Aljazeera reported that seven civilians were killed in regime strikes “in the neighborhoods of Sukkari Mashhad Marjeh and Salhin.”

But Free Syria TV reported injuries, not fatalities: “seven were  wounded as a result of the bombing of the # Russian warplanes on the neighborhood of Al Salhin  in Aleppo”.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
