Airwars assessment

Three civilians including a woman died and up to 11 more people were wounded in an alleged Russian airstrike on Baeedin, according to local media. A number of sources said that the three victims were elderly people.

The media opposition activist Abu Mohammad al-Halab told Syria News Desk that “the Russian air force struck houses in the centre of the neighbourhood”. Cluster bombs were reportedly used.

It should be noted that the Syrian Network for Human Rights reported deaths were caused by “government warplanes (allies) missiles”, which despite mentioning of the Syrian regime, most likely still pointed to Russia as “the ally”.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
