In what local media referred to as “a massacre”, up to nine civilians were killed and as many as 15 were wounded in airstrikes on the residential neighbourhood of Al Qousour, according to local media. Sources attributed the blame to Russia and Syrian regime raids.
The bombing caused an entire building to completely collapse, trapping civilians under the rubble of their homes.
Three women and a child were included in the death toll, according to sources. For example, Zaiton said: “Russian warplanes of the Sukhoi type targeted the neighborhoods of Idlib with five air strikes with high-explosive rockets, leaving three martyrs, including a girl and more than 15 wounded…warplanes caused the collapse of a complete building on the residents in the neighbourhood of Al Kusoor in the city of Idlib”.
Out of the named victims, three were unidentified adult males. Three of the victims were Palestinians, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that both Russian and Syrian warplanes fired onto Al Qousour, “causing the destruction of residential building, [the death of] three Palestinians, including a girl, and 15 others were injured.”
They added that “at least three families are still under the rubble of the shelling. The rescue teams are recovering from the debris of the shelling.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
