Airwars assessment

Seven civilians died and at least 10 others were injured in airstrikes on the Salheen neighborhood of Aleppo. While three sources alleged that Russia was responsible, a fourth said this was the work of Assad regime warplanes.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was “informed that no less than 5 people were killed while 10 others were wounded in strikes on the neighborhood”, adding that the number of deaths was likely to rise – while not specifying who was responsible.

Activists told Shaam News Network that Russian warplanes targeted Salheen – along with other neighborhoods in Aleppo – with a missile falling on a residential building, killing six civilians including women and children.According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, at least seven died in “suspected” Russian strikes.

However, the White Helmets said that the regime was to blame: “Syrian regime breaks truce by committing a massacre against civilians in al Salheen after they targeted the neighbourhood with a strike.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
