According to the VDC, one adult male civilian was killed in an alleged strike by Russian warplanes. The victim name has been published by local media activist.

A major battle appears to have taken place in the town, with the FSA reporting that one of its commanders was killed. And almost all sources blamed Russia for Mr Al A’had’s death. However Russia Today said that “Syrian warplanes launched raids on the towns of Khan Tuman and Hamima in the countryside of Aleppo.”

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
