Local sources reported that two civilians were killed and as many as 30 were injured following aerial shelling of the area of Sheikh Khudur, Aleppo.
Syria News Desk’s correspondent in Aleppo reported that “two civilians killed and more than 30 injured in Russian warplane targeting with a vacuum missile the neighbourhood of Al-Sheikh Khudar which is under the control of the opposition east of Aleppo and which is under siege by the regime.”
@ahmad5464561 added that a “flyer helicopter” struck the city with chlorine gasses.
The strikes, that took place as a part of a wider shelling of eastern Aleppo that day, were reportedly carried out by Russia or the Syrian regime. Three sources pointed to Russia while only Al Jazeera pointed to the Syrian regime. However, several sources merely mentioned that the strikes were carried out by “warplanes”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
