Between four and nine civilians were killed and at least 20 others were injured in airstrikes against the town of Al Mansoura in the western countryside of Aleppo.
The majority of local sources, including @ShahbaPress, allege that Russian warplanes were responsible for the airstrikes launched against Al Mansoura. However, SDC Aleppo offered a conflicting report and stated that the regime carried out the airstrikes.
According to multiple local sources, including Step News Agency, the airstrikes struck the Jawid printing plant, which resulted in the outbreak of flames and the death of at least four workers.
Videos posted by SDC Aleppo and Thiqa News show flames encircling the town of Al Mansoura.
Photographs posted by @mohmmad_hk depict firefighters putting out the flames from the fire.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
