Between three and 13 civilians were reported killed alleged Russian or Syrian regime artillery strikes on the Bustan Al Qasr neighbourhood in Aleppo.
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, “at least three civilians including a child died due to alleged Russian warplanes missiles firing on Bustan Al Qasr neighborhood in Aleppo city”
AleppoAMC posted a picture of a five-year-old child, whose dead body was recovered from the rubble.
But Halab News reported that the strike was conducted by helicopters, meaning that regime involvement can’t be ruled out – while Shahed-alep said that the civilian harm was caused by artillery shelling.
Smart News put the death toll at 13 with six more injured, noting the use of cluster bombs in the attack.
However, most sources put the death toll at five.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
