Three civilians were killed by airstrikes, possibly supplemented by artillery shelling, in Al-Baghouz, Deir Ezzor, local media reported, though the apportion of blame was unclear.
While all reports agreed that three civilians were killed in this event, they disagreed in terms of cause and responsibility.
While Step News Agency, Violations Documentation Center Syria and Masar Press all blamed Russian aerial shelling, Euphrates Post blamed the Syrian regime for launching rockets and artillery shelling.
Finally, Sound and Picture said that the three victims were killed by artillery shelling carried out by Iraqi forces – a very rare allegation in this context.
The incident occured in the morning.
