Three to four civilians including two children were killed in airstrikes on Talbiseh, according to local sources – though reports were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Assad regime were responsible.
Shaam News Network said that three civilians died and several were injured – “most of them children” – in Russian raids, while a video by Qasyun showed “a cemetery being destroyed as a result of Russia raids“. Orient News also reported “several” Russian strikes on the town.
However, according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, the victims died in an attack by regime warplanes. Syrian Mirror also blamed the regime, reporting that artillery “bombed Talbeesa with mortars and short-range missiles“.
Wartime News also put the death toll at three but added that dozens more were wounded – and blamed Russia. According to Akull radio, four civilians died and 20 were injured in strikes – though it didn’t say who was responsible.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
