Airwars assessment

Two sources reported that death of a man and his wife as a result of Russian airstrike. Both sources published exactly the same post: “The death of Khalifa Ali al-Azzawi / Abu Kawan and his wife as a result of the bombing of Russian airliners to their home and [they are] still under the rubble.” The sources were carbon copies of one another, effectively making this a single-source event.

There are no more details at this time.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
