Airwars assessment

One civilian was killed in Hazrama, Damascus, local media reported, following allegedly both Russian and Assad-waged aerial shelling of the town.

In continuation of the intense shelling of eastern Ghouta, Hazrama was subject to “air and missile bombardment”, as reported by LCCSY.

All known sources reported one civilian fatality from the strikes.

Baladi News and LCCSY, the only sources who apportioned blame, pointed both to shared Assad/Russian culpability.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
