Airwars assessment

A father and son were killed following an airstrike on the river crossing at Al-Qourya. Members of their family were also allegedly injured in the strike. Sources were conflicted as to who was responsible.

Euphrates Post blamed Russian warplanes for the strikes, however Smart News Agency reported that the Syrian regime was culpable for the civilian harm.

Some sources say their home was also damaged in the raid, so it can be assumed they lived near the river crossing.

There are no other details at this time.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
