Between six and 11 civilians died in an airstrike on a school holding displaced people in Qasr al Boureij village, according to local media. Most sources blamed barrel bombing by the regime, though there were also several allegations against Russia.
Eldorar said: “According to local media sources a regime helicopter targeted a school sheltering displaced people with explosive barrels in the village of Qasr al-Bureij, killing six people and injuring others.”
The Syrian Observatory also blamed the regime, but put the death toll as high as 10 or 11 – most of them from one family – including two children.
However, several other reports attributed the attack to Russia warplanes.
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, on “Monday noon, January 23rd 2017, fixed wing warplanes we believe are Russian fired missiles in the vicinity of the cemetery in the eastern parts of Qasr al Brij village, located in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate, , under the control of ISIS. This resulted in the killing of seven civilians from the same family including three children and two women.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
