Airwars assessment

One civilian was killed in an alleged aerial bombardment of Al Haboussah, Aleppo. Sources either blamed Russian warplanes for the raid, or did not attribute any blame. 

Despite the Violations Documentation Centre listing the victim as an adult male, an image of a child was published alongside a Facebook status, naming the victim. We are therefore unclear whether or not this civilian was a man or a child.

There are no other details at this time.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
