Between two and four civilians, including a father and his son – reportedly IDPS from al Haymaniya village in Hama governorate – died and several more were wounded in alleged Russian or regime airstrikes on Al Dana according to sources on the ground.
@IdlibPlus put the death toll at two, and several sources, including the Violations Documentation Centre, named the child Khaled Methkal al-Ahmad and his father Methkal al-Ahmad as killed.
Other sources, such as @HadiAlabdallah, put the death toll at four.
The Syrian Reporter said that “Russian warplanes launched three raids on the city Dana in the northern Idlib countryside, concentrated near the court building on the outskirts of the city.”
The Smart News Agency cited an activist nicknamed ‘Ahmed’, who said that “three air strikes targeted the Civil Defense Center in the city, which led to the destruction of the entire building and wounding a number of civilians. The bombing came in the context of a military escalation in cities and towns in Idlib, despite the continuation of the ‘easing of escalation’ agreement, of which Russia was a guarantor.”
@2011Hsr and @AJA_Syria noted that Russia and the regime had killed “seven people in raids across the cities of Ariha, Jisr al-Shughour, and the town of Al Dana”.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, who also said that the court building was targeted, added that “two fighters from Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham” were also killed.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
Family members (2)
- Khaled Methkal al-Ahmad Child male killed
- Methkal al-Ahmad Adult male killed
