Five civilians from the same family were reported injured in an alleged Russian or Syrian airstrike or artillery shelling on Kafar Nabl, Idlib, on August 11th which was the first day of Eid Al-Adha.
While an initial report stated that one woman was injured in the airstrike, all later sources indicated that the figure had risen to five as an understanding of the event unfolded.
Blame by local sources was attributed to both Russia and the Syrian regime. For example, SMART News Agency stated that “the city of Kafar Nabl south of Idlib was raided by Russian warplanes targeting houses, wounding five civilians from one family, including two women and a child, who were taken to a nearby hospital.”
However, SY24 correspondent said that the Syrian regime forces stationed in Braideej camp in the northwestern countryside of Hama rained down the city of Kafr Nabl in the southern countryside of Idlib with mortar missiles and artillery shells, which led to severe material damage to citizens’ properties, without information about injuries.
According to @jisrtv, “Regime forces bombard with rocket launchers, the city of Kafr Nabl, south of Idlib”. The airstrike is also reported to have caused fires and destruction in the attacked location.
Most sources attributed blame to Russia for the airstrike.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
