A remnant from a cluster bomb, allegedly Russian, killed one man and wounded another civilian when it exploded in Maarat al-Nu’man, Idlib, local media reported.
All known sources agreed that the incident was triggered by a cluster bomb remnant from a previous Russian bombardment. Step News reported that the civilian harm was caused “after the explosion of a cluster bomb remnant from a previous Russian raid on Maarat al-Nu’man in Idlib.”
It is, however, unclear whether the male victim, identified by name, was a civilian or a fighter. Step News referred to him as a civilian while a photo of him carrying a weapon was published on Facebook by Salim Mohammad Sheafi.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
