Airwars assessment

Two sources reported that nine civilians were killed and another six were wounded as a bakery in Jabriya village, Hama, was hit by airstrikes. Smart News Agency identified Russia as the likely culprit while al-Araby did not appoint blame, merely referring to “a military aircraft”.

Both sources said that five of the victims were working in the bakery while the remaining four were customers.

However, two other sources, RFSmediaOffice1 and @ghaith82, denied that the incident had taken place. Both reported that “there is no truth to the news published by some media organizations about the massacre in the village of Jabriya”.

Currently, there are no further details available.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
