Up to 12 civilians including women and children were killed and more than 15 injured in an airstrike on a bakery in Salheen. Reports were conflicted as to whether the attack was the work of Russia or the Assad regime.
The Shaam News Network said non-combatants were targeted by Russian warplanes as they went to buy bread. It put the death toll at 8. According to the White Helmets ten people died, though along with the SHRC they did not say who committed the raid. The death toll was put as high as twelve by Radio Al Kul after it said more victims were recovered from the rubble.
But the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed the regime for the event, reporting that eight people were killed when warplanes fired missiles close to the bakery, partially damaging it and putting it out of service.
Syria 2011 (which blames Russia) named 3 victims but also reported a young girl – no identification, Woman – no identification and Five other unidentified martyrs.
