Between one and five people died – indulging one adult male – following an airstrike on Dier Ezzor. Others were also wounded, however there were no specific numbers reported. Sources were conflicted as to who was to blame. Some attributed blame to the Syrian regime, however most blamed Russia.
DeirEzzor24 was the only source to report that five civilians were killed when a warplane struck a civilian home. They did however identify the named victim in conjunction with other sources.
Sources mentioned that “he is the third brother of two martyrs killed before -Karim and Mohammad.” However, this was likely not in this raid.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
