One man was reportedly injured and died as a result of his injuries in the aftermath of an alleged regime or Russian airstrike on Ghadafa, southeastern Idlib, on December 18, 2019, during daytime.
The man was identified by several sources as Abdel Qader Al Khaled. He was injured during the airstrike and was first transferred to the hospital, where he died several days after the incident. Al Khaled’s family is allegedly affiliated to the rebels and had been displaced from Abu Al-Zuhur, according to Facebook user Rabia Abdul.
Some sources, among them @iA6TWquU3yvk2RK, claimed that the raid was conducted by the regime’s Sukhoi-22 warplanes. @oulaalassaad reported instead that regime helicopters targeted the outskirts of the town with barrel bombs. According to @Hani_Alymani, however, Russian warplanes attacked the town with vacuum missiles.
The attack reportedly caused great damage to civilian property.
The victim’s brother Al Tayeb Abu Ali Medani posted on Facebook: “Dear friends in Al-Muharrir, God has honored us with the death of my brother Abdul Qadir, and because of the harsh circumstances, we ask you not perform the duty of condolence.”
The incident occured during the day.
