According to Zaitonmag, Russian aircraft carried out a raid on Sarmada on the Turkish border, “targeting a garage of relief trucks which has led to anonymous martyrs and two people slightly injured.“
The Syrian Network also reported the event, saying the attack by warplanes destroyed eight trucks and a water tank and killed one person. It also cited ‘Shareef’, a media activist from the town: “The shelling targeted a civilian area on the international highway between Sarmada and Bab Al Hawa crossing point where there were a group of fuel stations, warehouses and freight vehicles. Russian warplanes launched the airstrike, and I was able to differentiate it from the Syrian shelling.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
