Five named civilians from the same family, including three children, died as result of either Russian or Syrian regime airstrike in the Bab Nayrab neighbourhood of Aleppo, according to local media.
CNN reported that civilian infrastructure was destroyed in the strike: “As a result of heavy shelling last night, Bab Nayrab station, which provides water to about 250,000 people in the eastern districts of Aleppo stopped pumping because of being badly damaged”. Several other sources also cited damage to the water station amid “violent raids”.
