At least two civilians died and three or more were wounded in alleged Russian airstrikes on el Na’aymeh, according to two local sources.
Alyakeen Media published a number of videos showing destruction of the town and the removal of dead and wounded bodies from the rubble. Voiceovers in videos said that the strikes were carried out by Russia.
At 2.59 in one video, airstrikes are taking place while they are filming, and the ‘reporter’ says that Russian warplanes had not left the sky over the area for two days.
Step News Agency reported that Russia carried out “nearly seven airstrikes” on Na’aymeh, while the town was also subjected to “violent artillery and missile bombardment from regime forces in the town stadium“.
Further research is required to provide casualty numbers.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
