Three to four civilians died in alleged Russian airstrikes and/or shelling by the Assad regime, according to local sources. However, reports need further verification as half of them speak of Russian followed by regime shelling while the other half only mention regime shelling.
Orient News published a video showing the aftermath of a alleged Russian strike on “a popular market in Ein Tarma Rural Damascus“.
In a video by Aljisr Satellite Channel the reporter states that the area was targeted by Russian warplanes and then later subjected to artillery shelling.
SMO reported: “four civilians were martyred and others were injured following the air strikes of the occupation warplanes Ein Tarma City“.
The Shaam News Network blamed shelling by the regime for killing three civilians.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
