Two media activists and several Turkish soldiers were wounded in an alleged Russian airstrike upon the village of Qaminas on February 20th.
A tweet from @alhariri58 announced the wounding of Ibrahim al-Darwish and Ahmed Rahal, with the latter posting “I am fine” on WhatsApp and tweeting that Russian aircraft dropped cluster missile shelling 4 meters away from him. @oabozayd noted that Qaminas is a Turkish observation point and that several Turkish soldiers were wounded in the attack. Edlib News, Alaraby, and Shaam News also reported the attack, with Shaam noting that Russia continues to demonstrate a “lack of distinction between civilian or military targets” and referred to the war as “a genocide in Northwest Syria”.
The two wounded media activists were covering the attacks upon a civilian area when they were injured. Sarya posted on Facebook that the media activists were affiliated with terrorist groups, possibly indicating their support of the opposition.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights stated that Russian fixed wing warplanes carried out the assault.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
