Between two and four civilians were killed and seven others were injured, including a woman, in airstrikes against the town of Maarat al Arteek in Aleppo. The airstrikes reportedly struck the police station with bunker busting missiles and resulted in the death of a policeman.
The consensus among local sources, including @RFS_NORTH and @Syriamubasher, was that the airstrikes were carried out by Russian planes.
Images posted by @ShahbaPress and a video posted by the White Helmets showed the civil defense team removing the bodies of civilians from the rubble of collapsed buildings. The civil defense teams worked continuously for 25 days to recover the bodies of the civilians, including the body of the policeman.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
