An unspecified number of civilians were wounded in alleged Russian or regime airstrikes on Jisr al-Shughour, according to a single source, the Shaam News Network.

Most sources reported regime airstrikes on Jisr al-Shughour, noting “material damage” but no civilian harr. For example, @dored1pash said there had been “two air strikes targeting the city of Jisr Al-Shughour without human casualties”.

According to the Smart News Agency, ” a popular market in the city of Jisr al-Shughour, west of Idlib, northern Syria was struck [by the regime], which led to destruction and damage to buildings and public property. The market that was targeted is a civilian market and there are no non-civilians working in the blacksmithing market.”

However, the Shaam News network reported that “Russian and Regime warplanes launched dozens of very violent air raids on the cities and towns of Idlib, causing dozens of martyrs and wounded civilians.” It added that there had been “a number of wounded civilians in Khan Shekhun, Mhambel, Al Naqir, Al habit, Mukah, Al Taman’a ,Al  Khwain and Sefwhen in the southern countryside, Jisr al-Shaghoor, Marj Zuhour and Al Zyadiya in the western countryside.”
