Airwars assessment

Between nine and 11 civilians died and up to 25 more were wounded in alleged Russian or Assad regime airstrikes on Termamin town, according to local sources.

The lowest death count was given by @NewsFlashNet at at least nine. RevoSpring said that 10 people died, while Halab News joined most sources in putting the figure at 11. All of these reports attributed the event to Russia.

According to Smosy, “on Saturday [Oct 15th] the Russian occupation aircraft carried out a horrific massacre in the town of Termanin in Idlib, killing 11 civilians and wounding 25 others. Activists reported that the aircraft bombed a drug store and a civilian defence headquarters located in residential areas in town, leading to a horrific massacre”.

However, one source, Sdusyria, blamed the regime.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
