Between five and forty civilians, including at least one woman, one child and one adult male, were killed and up to forty were wounded in airstrikes launched against Al Dana town in Idlib.
Most sources only reported preliminary counts of casualties and many expected that the number was higher due to many civilians still stuck under the rubble. Most allegations reported that twelve or thirteen people had been killed, however Alsouria put the death toll much higher at forty.
According to the Local Coordination Committee Syria, the area struck included civilian neighborhoods, a popular market, and a school.
Images and videos posted by various news sources show the aftermath of the airstrikes, which caused buildings to crumble to the ground and covered surrounding areas and people with a layer of dust.
There was not a consensus over who was responsible for the airstrikes. Most national sources, including Local Coordination Committee of Syria, Alsouria News and Syrian Network for Human Rights identified Syrian regime planes as responsible for the attacks. However, a few sources, including Erem News and Jisirtv, blamed Russia for the airstrikes.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
