Three civilians, a mother and her two children, were reported killed in an alleged Russian or Assad regime airstrike on Jarjanaz.
Shahba reported: “Two children were killed with their mom in a Russian warplanes shelling in Jarjanaz and others wounded.” Halab Today TV published a similar report.
All of the other sources reported that a woman and her two children were killed in the strike.

However, Qasioun blamed the regime for the three deaths.
