At least five civilians were killed, including two children, and others were wounded in more than five alleged Russian or Assad regime airstrikes against the town of Rasim al Hamam in Eastern Aleppo, according to local sources.
The majority of sources, including Smart News and Syrianoor, reported that Russian planes were responsible for carrying out the airstrikes. However, @AJA_Syria published a contradictory report, identifying regime planes as to blame for the airstrikes.
According to Baladi News, the five civilians that were killed were members of the same family (Hassan Aliawi Al Shekh’s family).
Some of those that were injured were in critical condition at the time of reporting, which was expected to increase the death toll. In addition to the human cost, the airstrikes also caused considerable damage to houses and property.
Aljazeera reported that at the time, the area that was struck was under control of the Islamic State.
The incident occured around dawn.
The victims were named as:
