An unspecifiied number of civilians were killed and wounded, following an airstrike on Al-Kandeer – specifically the water crossing between Al-Kandeer and Sbeikhan.

Sources were conflicted as to who was to blame for the strikes. A single source, Step News Agency, blamed Russian raids, however all the others reported sighting “unknown warplanes” or “military aircraft”.

None of the sources reported on specific numbers of dead and wounded, however, most alleged it was “several” or more than one.

There were, according to DeirEzzor24, “several raids” altogether on the vicinity. 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
