Between three and eight civilians including a child and a woman died in alleged Russian or Assad regime airstrikes on Aleppo al Hallak neighbourhood, according to sources on the ground.
Al Jazeera reported that three civilians died in a strike by regime warplanes.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights, who blamed Russia, put the number killed at “at least 4 civilians including a woman”.
But Baladi News and Halab News Network put the death toll at eight, including a child.
Sources were conflicted on who was responsible. Most reports attributed the incident to Russia, while only al-Jazeera pointed to the Assad regime as the culprit. But Akhbar Al-an claimed that both parties were responsible.
Baladi News also reported that there was “shelling with missiles.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
