Airwars assessment

Between four and nine civilians including one child died in airstrikes on the Kallassa and Maysar neighbourhoods of Aleppo, according to sources on the ground – though it was unclear whether Russia or the Syrian regime was responsible.

LCCSY reported that “Russia’s and Assad’s warplanes conducted airstrikes on the eSufun al Samanastern neighborhoods of Aleppo” – including in the Kallassa and Maysar neighbourhoods.

According to @syria_pluse , “a squadron of four Russian aircraft bombarded the neighbourhoods of Myasar, Hanano, Salhen and Kallaseh”.

Most sources said that three civilians had died. For example, Shahba Press reported that there were three dead and about six wounded in the Myasar district”.

RFS_North claimed that Myasar was hit by barrel bombs which would imply that the strikes there were conducted by the Syrian regime.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
