Airwars assessment

Two civilians died and several more were wounded in an airstrike on Aleppo’s Karam al Nuzha neighbourhood, local media reported. While most sources blamed Russia, several others noted that the regime was also conducting strikes in Aleppo during this period of time, meaning that it’s involvement can’t be ruled out.

According to @dodoo559, “two raids from the Russian warplanes targeted Karam al Nuzha neighbourhood killing two people, including Hussein Madllal, 22, and wounding a child.”

@SmartNewsAgency blamed “Russian warships” and “Russian warplanes” for the death of two civilians

Alaraby reported that “Russian and regime warplanes continued their raids on the eastern part of the opposition-controlled city of Aleppo, killing more civilians. The warplanes launched several raids on Bab al-Nasr neighborhood in the old city of Aleppo, while two civilians were killed and others were wounded by air strikes on the neighbourhood of Karam al Nuzha”.
