At least one civilian died in an airstrike on Aleppo’s Bab al Nasr neighbourhood, local media reported. Most sources blamed Russia, though several also pointed towards the Syrian regime. A number of other reports didn’t identify the culprit, saying that both Russia and the regime were carrying out strikes on Aleppo – including on Bab al Nasr – during this period of time.
Halab News attributed the event to Russia and put the death count at one. Other sources said there had been civilian casualties but didn’t give numbers.
According to Al Jazeera, “fifty people were killed and others were injured by Russian air raids on the neighborhoods of Bab al-Nasr and Sukkari and Karam al Nuzha and Al Mashad. The reporter added that the shelling also caused considerable damage to property and other homes and property”.
However, @SyriaPressorg1 said the regime had shelled the neighbourhood, as did Almaghrib Today.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
