Between two and 10 civilians died and several more were wounded in airstrikes on Al Sabha town in Deir Ezzor, according to local media. The majority of sources blamed Russia for the event, though there was also an allegation against the Assad regime.
The lowest death count was given as two by LCCSY, who blamed Russia.
However, Euphrates Post – who also said that Russia was responsible – was among other sources putting the death toll at 10 civilians.
But the Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that three died in an attack by “government warplanes”.
Some other sources didn’t apportion blame. According to Deir Ezzor24, “the bombing targeted the mosque of Omar ibn al-Khattab in the village of al Sabha in the eastern suburb of Deir al-Azur, which led to the death of six civilians and damage to houses surrounding the mosque. Our correspondent said that the bombing was repeated twice; the first time there was only material damage, but on the second occasion there was a massacre”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
