Two civilians died and several others were wounded in raids on Al Shifoniyah, according to local reports – though it is currently unclear whether Russia or the Assad regime was responsible.
Shaam News Network reported that “After six days of calm the regime and Russia have returned to Douma to disturb the lives of civilians, after warplanes launched three violent raids on the outskirts of the city.”
Syrian PC reported that one non-combatant died and several more were wounded in raids by warplanes, though did not say who they belonged to. It went on to say that “activists reported one martyr and several wounded when warplanes targeted Al Shifoniya with two strikes“, but did not clarify who the warplanes belonged to.
According to the White Helmets, “warplanes carried out two strikes on al Shifoniya…at the same time as a violent artillery shelling and the filght [sic] of surveillance planes in the skies of eastern ghouta.”
The Violations Documentation Center also named these two victims but said that they were killed in regime shelling. Baladi News also blamed the regime, saying one person was killed and others wounded in the bombardment.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
