Up to two civilians were reported killed and others injured in an airstrike on Kafr Hout, Southern Aleppo, according to local sources – though it was unclear whether Russia or Assad’s regime were responsible for the attack.
According to Step News Agency, “the Russian warplanes targeted the village of Kfar Hout with three air strikes, killing one person and injuring several others.”
The death toll was corroborated by Syrian Mirror News, who added that it was “an aerial bombardment of space rockets”. However, it also noted that “the regime targeted the southern Aleppo countryside with artillery shells, killing and injuring civilians, while Russian aircraft continued to raid the countryside itself.”
Qasioun News, however, placed the death toll at two civilians and attributed responsibility for the attack to Russian forces.
One civilian was injured in the burning of a gas station, according to a video by Smart News Agency.
The correspondent for Syria News Desk confirmed this and reported that “a civilian was killed and others were injured after the Russian warplanes targeted a fuel shop in the village of Kfarhout, under the control of the Islamic State, in the southern Aleppo countryside.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
