Three civilians from one family, including an infant, were reportedly killed in alleged Russian airstrikes on Mourak, Hama governorate, on July 6th, 2019, according to local sources.
According to Syrian Network for Human Rights, “three civilians (a girl and her parents), were killed while grazing sheep as warplanes we believe were Russian fired missiles on the vicinity of Morek town in Hama governorate northern suburbs, on July 6th.”
Syria Civil Defense alleged that a “father, wife and son” were killed in the attack, while @so_ria98 names “Kanhar Mohamed El Wardi, his wife and his two months old daughter” as slain in the incident. The Syrian Human Rights Committee also reported that the child was a girl. According to @so_ria98, the family was displaced from the village of Krah. According to @HalabTodayTV, “others from the same family were injured.”
The Syrian Civil Defence in Hama reported: “Three civilians from one family were killed and a fourth injured as a result of a fire in his car after it was targeted by four airstrikes. Civil defence teams rushed to the place and worked to retrieve the bodies of the martyrs and deliver them to their families.” In addition, firefighting teams were aiming to distinguish the fire in the burning car.
Similarly, Step News stated that “Russian and Syrian warplanes launched several airstrikes on Saturday, on the towns of Mourak, Altamneh and Kafarzita in the northern Hama countryside, causing the deaths of three people and a number of wounded from the same family.”
All sources reported that Russia had been responsible for the strikes. Only Step News Agency mentioned the Syrian regime in a summary of events on July 6th, including airstrikes on Al Tamneh and Kafarzeita. Hence, the civilian harm status for this incident is graded as fair.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
