Airwars assessment

One or two civilians were reported killed in an alleged Russian or regime airstrike on the Al Qaterji neighbourhood of Aleppo.

HNN reported one woman was killed by a missile.

Qasioun said that “Russian warplanes shelling Qaterji killed two civilians while the White Helmets are still searching for survivors in the rubble.” Other sources published similar reports.

Alamawi also reported that two civilians were killed and added that five others were wounded, whereas Shahba wrote that ten people were wounded.

HNN listed “an unidentified woman and child” as killed.

However, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that “regime warplanes targeted Bustan al-Qaser, Qaterji and al_Ferdous in eastern Aleppo”, while the Shaam News Network said that both Russian warplanes and regime helicopters launched “intense air raids with all kinds of rockets into neighborhoods of Aleppo”.
