Local media reported the death of one civilian woman in the al-Mouwasalat area of Aleppo as a consequence of aerial shelling – though it was unclear whether Russia or the Assad regime caused her death.

According to the Shaam News Network, “Russian and Assad’s warplanes continued their air raids on the city of Aleppo and its countryside, despite the announcement by the regime of its intention to ease the bombardment of the city. Raids have led to the fall of (..) one martyr in al Mouwasalat”.

Syria2011 reported that the victim was a woman, but did not named her.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
