Several civilians were wounded in airstrikes at various locations in Aleppo including the villages of Al-Sayyala, Maizliya and Ramla and other areas in the southern countryside of Aleppo. Sources blamed both the Syrian regime and Russia.

Smart News Agency – who reported Russia as culpable for the raids – was the only source to report that two civilians were injured.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that “violent explosions rocked areas in the southern countryside of Aleppo” in the morning. They did not attribute blame.

Geographic Syria have suggested there were clashes in the area involving both Russia and the Syrian regime: “The Russian warplanes launched several air strikes with surface rockets on the villages of Ramla, Ma`ezilia and Sayyala. Heavy artillery shells fired by the regime forces fell on the villages of Mabarqa and Al Baha in the southern countryside of Aleppo.”
