Up to two civilians were killed and several were left wounded following alleged Russain airstrikes on a water-crossing in Sabikahn, Deir Ezzor, local media reported.
Several sources reported that Russian-waged missiles had struck an “airfield waterway” or a “water-crossing”, reportedly to hinder the escape of people in the village, who were fleeing by boat, as noted by both @Abdallah5360 and @AlSharqia24.
According to most sources, the strikes resulted in civilian harm. For instance, @syria7ra reported that “the bombing (…) resulted in the occurrence of martyrs and wounded among civilians.”
However, @asharqasouri and the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SN4HR) reported only material damage. SN4HR said that the strikes had “severely damaged several ferries and boats in the crossing and rendering them inoperable.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
