According to local media, a family of three – a married couple and their child – was killed by Russian or Assad-waged airstrikes in Homs, though the exact location is unclear among the sources.
Several sources reported the death of the three civilians, a man, a woman and their child, and many identified them by name.
However, while the Violations Documentation Centre (VDC) reported that the family was killed in al-Sokhna in Homs, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SN4HR) said that the family was killed by warplanes firing missiles on Kadir village, also in Homs.
Most sources pointed to Russia as the culprit, though the incident remains contested as SN4HR attributed blame to the “Syrian-Russian alliance”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
Family members (3)
