Airwars assessment

Three civilians were reported killed and 20 injured in alleged Russian or Assad regime airstrikes on Al Bab. Up to 10 ISIL militants were also reported killed.

Media activist Nassim Al Shamali said Russian warplanes launched several raid with cluster bombs on Daesh-occupied Al Bab, targeting al Noveaute street, Dowar al Manshie and several other areas. He said four of the 20 injured were in a critical condition and that the death toll would likely rise.

Halab News also reported three deaths including 27-year old Abdul-Qader al-Issa. But it only blamed Mr al-Issa’s death on Russia, saying that two further unnamed victims died after an airstrike by the Syrian regime.
