Between two and six civilians including a child died and up to eight more were wounded in an alleged Russia airstrike on the road between Bdama and Hambushiyah in the countryside of Idlib, according to local media.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, “a child and a man were killed and eight others were injured including four children under the age of 18, due to raids carried out by warplanes on areas in al-Hambushiyyeh village, which is located in the western countryside Jisr al-Shughur at the administrative border with the northeastern countryside of Latakia. T death toll is expected to rise because there are some people in critical situation.”
