Airwars assessment

Russian vacuum missiles allegedly targeted a key bakery in Al Atarib, taking it completely out of service. Reports said the bakery served more than 100,000 people (apparently confirmed by activists). There were no reports of casualties, but the Syrian Network for Human Rights said the bakery was the “greatest in the western region of Aleppo suburbs“, providing bread to 13 neighbourhoods. Some 200 tonnes of flour was also reportedly destroyed.

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
