Four civilians were reportedly killed in alleged Russian airstrikes on Al Latamina, Hama governorate, on June 19th, 2019.
According to the Syrian Civil Defense, “four were killed by aerial bombardment of Al Latamina” – a figure also cited by Shaam News.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights wrote that “Ra’fat Kallal al Saleh al Hamada was killed as fixed-wing warplanes we believe were Russian fired missiles on al Latamena town in Hama governorate northwestern suburbs, on June 19.” According to @shabablatamni, Al Saleh spent seven years in Syrian regime prisons since the start of the Syrian revolution in 2011.
The Syrian Human Rights Committee reported only one casualty, also naming Al Saleh as the victim.
Several sources reported that Russian warplanes hit the town with four consecutive airstrikes. @shabablatamni reported the use of concussion missiles, whereas Smart News Agency reported that mortar rockets were fired.

Hence, the civilian harm status of this incident is graded as fair.
