Local sources reported that five civilians were killed, and four injured, in an airstrike on the al Salheen neighbourhood of Aleppo. While most sources blamed Russia some reports said that the regime also carried out strikes in al Salheen on this day.
A tweet from @AleppoAMC included graphic photographs of three wounded children and a wounded man, with the caption “wounded in aerial bombing, which targeted al Salheen in Aleppo on Friday [Sept 23rd].”
@Sy_Reporter said five martyrs were killed in al Salheen. Islammemo, Almustaqbal, the Shaam News Network and HNN also corroborated that number. @Sy_Reporter blamed Russia, as did Orient News, and HNN. HNN identified the name of one of the victims.
Zamanalwasl did not distinguish between regime and Russian forces, saying both struck neighbourhoods across Aleppo on Friday.
One source alleged that the planes used machine guns in the neighbourhood, as well as bombs. @RFS_NORTH said civilian homes were on fire after the neighbourhood was hit by bombs and strafed with “heavy machine guns.”
According to @shahed_alep, the munitions used were cluster bombs.
A video posted by Qasioun News to YouTube showed a father grieving over his dead son.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
