Three children (brothers), named as Israa (6 years old), Bara’a (1.5 years old), and Hakem Khaled Adnan al Saleh (4 years old), died and their mother and others were wounded in an alleged Russian or regime airstrike on their home in Dar al Kabira at dawn on November 5, 2019, according to local media.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights reported: “The sibling children Israa, Bara’a and Hakem Khaled Adnan al Saleh, displaced from al Latamena town in the northwestern suburbs of Hama governorate, were killed and their mother was injured as fixed- wing warplanes we believe were Russian fired missiles on their house in al Dar al Kabira village in the southern suburbs of Idlib governorate, on November 5, 2019.” A tweet from @asseraaalsham identified Israa and Baraa as “daughters.”
@abuhuzaifa_ also pointed to the regime, tweeting: “Bashar al-Assad and his regime writes its constitution with the blood of children and the massacres he makes daily with the Russian occupation. This criminal is protected by his constitution shedding the blood of innocent people”.
A tweet from @muhammad_salhab reported “three children were killed and a number of civilians were wounded, as a result of Russian high-explosive missiles targeting the town of al-Dar al-Kabira in the southern countryside of Idlib.” @0120541i also identified “several” people as being wounded.
@NEDAAPOST identified that the children and mother were trapped under the rubble following the airstrikes. @media_idlib reported that “civil defense teams recovered the bodies of the children and rescued the injured woman to the nearest medical point.”
Sources published exceptionally graphic images of the dead children.
The vast majority of the sources attributed the strikes to Russia. However, a tweet by @asseraaalsham blamed the regime for the strikes.
