One civilian was killed in a airstrike in Bab al Nayrab, Aleppo, according to local media.
It is unclear who was responsible for the attack, with multiple sources citing both Russian and Syrian planes.
Three local media sites said that one civilian died in the attack. Halab News says one “unidentified” civilian died “following Russian enemy raids on Bab al Nairab neighbourhood.”
A report from Annahar news said: “The bombing was accompanied by raids, barrels of explosives and rocket launchers, according to an AFP correspondent. He said one of the raids targeted a civilian defense center in the Bab al-Nairab neighborhood, without causing any casualties.”
It is thought that Bab al Nayrab’s water and electricity stations were struck, with multiple sources claiming that they were put out of service by the bombing.
The attack was part of a wider campaign on the neighbourhoods of Eastern Aleppo. It is currently unknown how many injuries there were in Bab al Nayrab alone.
According to the BBC on November 17th, “Russian cruise missiles were also reported to have been seen on the third day of the attack and were driven towards Aleppo. Moscow had said earlier it was not targeting the city of Aleppo. Rescuers said Wednesday night [Nov 16th] that 100 people were killed there and in surrounding areas during the attack. A large number of injuries were said to have occurred in recent attacks.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
