Five civilians including one child were reported killed – and five others injured – in an alleged Russian airstrike on the village of Najieh.
The Shaam News Network posted images on Facebook showing the remains of what it stated were missiles dropped by Russian warplanes, while Jisr TV described the weapons as “cluster rockets originating from Russian battleships.”
Four victims were later named by the Violations Documentation Center.
The VDC also later named a 60 year old man Abdul Wahhab Hsain as having died from wounds sustained in the strike.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
