Airwars assessment

An unspecified number of civilians were wounded in airstrikes on Ma’ara Al-Nassan, according to local media.

@AsadSouria reported that “Syrian-Russian warplanes carry out raids on insurgent positions in Ma’arat al-Nu’asan and al-Tahal village”, however they are a pro-regime source, therefore Airwars assessors and researchers conclude it is not a reliable source.

Cluster bombs and phosphorus bombs were used in the raid, according to local media.

There were no reports of civilian causalities.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
