One to three civilians were reported killed in airstrikes on al Latamina, Hama, on July 25th, 2019. @jisirtv tweeted that barrel bombs were used in the attack.
Syrian Network for Human Rights named one fatality as “Abdul Hakim Ahmad al Sayyed”, “killed as warplanes we believe were Russian fired several missiles on al Latamina town in Hama governorate northwestern suburbs, on July 25, 2019.”
In a later post, the source blamed Syrian regime helicopters that “dropped several barrel bombs on Ali bin Abi Taleb Mosque in al Qandila neighborhood”.
Orient News stated that “the Russian bombardment of rockets and cluster bombs killed three civilians in the town of Al Latamina,” and that “the dead were known as Khalid Mahmoud al-Hudayri, his son Ahmed, and Abdul Hakim al-Sayyid”.
