Between six and ten civilians including three to four children and one woman were killed in alleged Russian airstrikes on Kaljabreen, according to local sources.
Shaam News Network reported that Russian warplanes targeted a school for sheltering displaced people in Kaljabreen, “causing a horrific massacre“. According to an initial report by the Syrian Network for Human Rights, at least six civilians including four children and a woman died when “suspected Russian warplanes missiles fired on Kaljabrein village“.
But a later SN4HR report put the death toll higher at 10 including three children and a woman, reporting that they were killed when Russian planes launched missiles next to “Omar Bin Khattab mosque on the road between Kaljibreen town and Maree’ city in Aleppo“.
One victim 18-year-old male was named by the Violations Documentation Center but it is not clear where in Aleppo he died. Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently also named him, and said he died following a Russian strike that targeted him in the northern Aleppo countryside on February 15th. He was also named for the incident on February 15th in Azaz (see above), so further research is required to ascertain which incident he died in.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
