Between four and six civilians including three children and several women died and up to 20 more were wounded in airstrikes on the al-Farej camp outside of Idlib, according to local media – though reports were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Syrian regime were responsible.
Qasioun and Syrian Network for Human Rights attributed the strike to Russia, though some other sources pointed to the regime.
According to the Smart News Agency, “regime warplanes carried out four raids in Al-Farjeh displaced camp in the countryside of Idlib killed six civilians, including three children and two women, and wounded others”.
Zaman al-Wasl News also blamed the regime, putting the death toll at four including a woman, and noting that cluster bombs were used in the attack.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
