Airwars assessment

Five men were reportedly injured in alleged Russian or Syrian regime air and/or artillery strikes in Al Taman’a, Idlib, on August 12th, 2019, according to local sources.

Shaam News documented “wounded civilians” in a number of cities and towns, including Al Taman’a, after “Russian and regime warplanes and helicopters launched airstrikes accompanied by very heavy artillery and rocket shelling.” Orient News stated that “five men” were injured in Al Taman’a as a result of “aerial bombardment”.

In a tweet, @OrientNews reported: “The factions confront an infiltration attempt by sectarian militias near Al Taman’a, Idlib”, but it remains unclear if this refers to the same incident in which five men were injured.

@baladinetwork tweeted: “Airstrikes, artillery and missile strikes by the regime target the town of Al Taman’a in the southern countryside of Idlib.”

@HalabTodayTV reported “Russian airstrikes on the city of Khan Sheikhoun, the town of Al Taman’a, and the village of Karsaah, south of Idlib, and on Kafr Zita in the northern countryside of Hama.”

Sources blamed both Russia and the Syrian regime for the strikes.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
