Between two and three civilians, including a woman and a child, were killed and nine others, including children, were injured in alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrikes against the town of Kala’at al Madeeq in northwestern Hama, according to local sources. The initial estimate of two civilians killed was reported by Smart News Agency while Al Latamna reported the next day (September 22nd) that a child had died of their wounds sustained in the airstrikes, bringing the estimate to three civilians killed.
Smart News Agency reported that the city center was struck by the airstrikes, resulting in the death of a young man and a woman. The civil defense teams transported the wounded to nearby field hospitals and among the wounded, the injuries varied between medium and critical. According to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, around five airstrikes were launched against the town.
Conflicting reports were given as to who was responsible for carrying out the airstrikes. Smart News Agency identified Russian planes as responsible while Syrian Network for Human Rights only identified the planes as belonging to the Syrian-Russian alliance. The other two sources that reported on the incident, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Al Latamna, did not identify who was to blame.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
