Airwars assessment

Alleged Russian and/or Syrian regime warplanes struck the town of Taman’a, Idlib, reportedly wounding several civilians, local media reported.

Sham News Network reported how “Russian and Asiad military aircraft launched dozens of air raids,” wounding civilians in multiple towns across eastern Idlib on February 10th, including Taman’a.

While other sources provided similar reported, it was only Sham News Network who reported about injury of civilians following the strikes.

All sources, except one, pointed to Russia as the responsible; Sham News Network pointed to both “Russian and Asiad military aircraft”.

Step News Agency described that the airstrikes coincided with violent clashes between the opposition forces and the regime on the ground.

While Edlib Media Center and Step News Agency attributed blame to Russia, the event remains contested as Sham News Network pointed to both Russian and Syrian regime culpability.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
