Local sources reported the killing of Mohamad Amla Al Fals Abu Ammar and his daughter Wafa Amla Al Fals on Sunday June 4th, as warplanes struck his residence in the village of Muhasan in rural Deir Ezzor.

Some sources also mentioned the wounding of other members of his family. The sources disagreed on the nationality of the warplanes, as some alleged they were Russian, and others contended that they were Syrian regime warplanes.

According to Jorf, “Mohammed al-Fals and his young daughter Wafa were killed and his sons and grandchildren were seriously injured in a raid on his house in the city of Muhsin east.”

@Maher_slebi  and  @abdulhzidan, alleged that the US-led Coalition was responsible for the death of Mr Mohammed al-Fals and his daughter – however, @abdulhzidan said that they were killed at night when the Coalition reportedly struck their home.

Orient News didn’t identify the warplanes responsible but said that the attack resulted in “three martyrs and seven wounded, including women and children.”

The local time of the incident is unknown.

The victims were named as:
