Airwars assessment

Between two and three civilians, including two women and a female child, were killed and others were wounded in alleged Russian or regime airstrikes against the town of Ba’arbo in the southern countryside of Idlib. At the time of their death, the civilians that were killed were riding in a car. According to @Omar_Madaniah, the civilians killed in the airstrikes were members of a family that had been displaced from Kal’et al Madeek.

Conflicting reports were given as to who was responsible for the airstrikes against Ba’arbo. While Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that Russia was responsible for carrying out the airstrikes, @huseen_syria attributed the airstrikes to regime planes.

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
