One civilian was killed in an airstrike on Ltamenah according to local sources – though reports were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Assad regime was responsible.
A citizen journalist, Mohammad Hamaoui, posted a video showing a missile reportedly dropped by a Russian warplane. And according to Zaman Masdar, “Russian warplanes launched an attack on Latamna with explosive missiles which destroyed seven houses, but there were no reports about casualties because civilians were in an underground shelter.”
All4Syria reported that Russia had carried out “tens of raids”.
The Violations Documentation Centre named one victim as killed in a Russian strike. Syrian Human Rights Center also named Musa Abdullah Shaheen and said that he was killed in a Russian strike.
Some other sources, however, did not say who was responsible for his death, referring only to “warplanes”. A tweet by LCCSY blamed the regime, reporting that it had conducted “several raids” on Ltamenah that day.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
