One adult male and as many as five children was killed, in airstrikes on the residential neighbourhood of Hamidiya. Up to four civilians were also wounded. Sources were conflicted as to who was to blame, with some attributing blame to Russia, while others blamed the Syrain regime.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the people killed were “former fighters”. SO4HR was the only source to make this claim.
Syria News Desk said that the Syrian regime targeted “a four-storey residential building”, causing it to collapse almost entirely.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
