Airwars assessment

One woman was killed in airstrikes against the town of al Kharita in Deir Ezzor governorate according to local sources. It is unclear which belligerent was to blame for the strikes, however some sources here confirm there were clashes with the Syrian regime and Russia and Daesh in the area around that date.

While the incident was reported about on September 24th, Marsad al Hassaka identified that the airstrikes had actually occurred a few days before that so it is unclear the exact date of the airstrikes.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
