One child was killed, and between one and five other civilians were injured, following airstrikes on Baya’eyat Al-Danash, Aleppo, local media reported. Sources all blamed Russian warplanes for the strikes, however one local source did not attribute blame to any belligerent.

Initial reporting suggested that two women were injured and a child was killed. But other sources were unspecific on numbers, reporting there were “several casualties among the civilians”, suggesting both dead and wounded.

Step News specified that the Russian warplanes “targeted” the vicinity “after midnight with rocket rockets”.

The following day on the 25th, the Smart News Agency said that there were as many as five wounded civilians from this casualty event.
