Between 10 and 15 civilians including at least one child died and 20 more non-combatants were wounded in airstrikes on Aleppo’s Al Kallassah neighbourhood, according to local media. Sources blamed both raids by Russian warplanes and Syrian regime helicopters, which reportedly caused widespread destruction and left people trapped under the rubble.
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, “fixed-wing warplanes believed to have been Russian struck residential homes in the vicinity of Al Kanej gas station in Al Kallasa neighbourhood, killing 10 individuals”.
@ShahbaPress Russai was among many sources blaming Russia; it added that the strikes led to the “collapse of three buildings”.
Many sources put the death toll at 15 with 20 more people injured.
It was unclear whether Russia or the regime were to blame for the casualties, with reports stating that both parties were active over the area. For example, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that “Russian warplanes and regime helicopters carried out attacks in the neighborhoods of Kallaseh, Al-Qaterji, Bab al-Neirab, al-Ma’adi and al-Ferdus”.
According to Almajhar and All4Syria, “four fighter jets and three helicopters were flying in the atmosphere and bombarded the Aleppo neighborhoods of Salaheddin, al-Ansari, Al Mashhad zibdiye, Al Kalassa, Fardous, Al Ma’adi, Alqatrgi, Myaser, Alsakhur, Hulk, Shqayef and Hndarat”.
Similarly, it was unclear from a report by the Shaam News Network whether Russia or the regime caused the civilian harm.
Halab News, who blamed Russia, named four victims – including one child.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
Family members (2)
- Omar Falah Age unknown male killed
- Mohammad Falah Age unknown male killed
- Abd al Hai al Obeid 69 years old male killed
- Fatima Termanini Child died from wounds sustained in the event killed
