One civilian was reportedly killed and up to nine were wounded in an alleged Russia or Assad regime airstrike on the town of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib, local media reported.
Ahmed Khatib, a correspondent for the Mirror of Syria in Idlib, said that “warplanes carried out several air raids on the residential neighbourhoods and the popular market in the city of Khan Sheikhoun, killing one person and injuring eight others.”
Another source, @ahmadalsheiko, reported that the strikes were carried out by “S-24 warplanes”.
Most sources pointed to Russia as the responsible party while @SPRINGNOWTIME reported that both the Syrian regime and Russia were to blame.
Khan Shakhoun was most likely subject to two different attacks that day (or the morning of the 25th). The two incidents have been treated separately. Also see event RS2019a.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
