Airwars assessment

One adult male civilian, Mohammed Ibrahreem Ello, was killed in an airstrike on Darat Izza according to local sources – though only one report alleged that this was a Russian strike.

Aleppo News named the victim and said that he was killed by a “warplane“. According to Al-Maghrib Today, the regime was to blame: “one man got killed and many injured in warplane attack by the government.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said that there were strikes on Darat Izza (they did not say by whom), but that no one was killed.

But the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed Russia, reporting that “Mohammad Ibrahim Alo, age 47, from Kafr Hamra town in Aleppo governorate died in suspected Russian warplanes missiles fired on Darat Azza city in Aleppo governorate, April 14.”

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
