Two brothers were killed and others civilians were wounded – according to one source – following an airstrike on Soha. Sources were conflicted as to who was to blame. Some reported that Russia was to blame, and others attributed blame to the Syrian regime. The Syrian Network for Human Rights pointed to the “Russian-Syrian alliance”.
According to Syrian Press Centre, “warplanes targeted the area of Akerbat and the villages of Suha and Hammadi Omar in the eastern Hama countryside on Monday afternoon with six air strikes with space rockets”. They did not specify a belligerent.
