A teacher and his wife were killed, and a number of civilians were wounded, in alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrikes on the town of Deir Sunbul, Idlib governorate, in the morning of December 19th, 2019, according to local sources.
Some sources, among them Baldi News, reported initially that only one woman had been killed in the attack. The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) identified two victims: the teacher Anas Mustafa Al-Rasheed and his wife Sana Adnan Al-Rasheed. The family had been originally displaced from the village of Kafr Basin in the southern countryside of Idlib governorate.
LCCSY reported that the raid was conducted by Sukhoi-22 warplanes at 10:39. SNHR blamed the Syrian regime forces, while Al Bayan claimed Russian warplanes fired the missiles instead.
