Civilians were possibly killed and wounded as al-Marj, Damascus, was subject to aerial shelling, as reported by local media, who blamed both Syrian and/or Russian forces.
While several sources reported that al-Marj had been struck by air raids, no sources reported the scope of the civilian harm the strikes inflicted.
Only Step News Agency al-Jazeera, indicated that the strikes had caused civilian harm, as they in their general reporting from eastern Ghouta reported that the shelling “resulted in the deaths and injuries amid continued heavy shelling and flying of warplanes in the airspace” – including the shelling of al-Marj. However, no exact figures from al-Marj were provided.
Finally, sources were not clear in terms of culpability, as blame was appointed to either the Syrian regime, Russia, or both across the reports
The local time of the incident is unknown.
