One civilian died and between five and ten were injured in strikes on Hraytan, according to local sources – though reports were conflicted as to whether this was the work of Russia or the Assad regime.
The Shaam News Network said that one civilian was killed and five were wounded in Russian strikes, “noting that one of the raids targeted the al Bara’ bin Malik mosque”. Many other sources also blamed Russia.
Several raids – including one on the mosque – were equally reported by the White Helmets, but they did not identify the warplanes responsible. They published footage which included the extinguishing of a fire and said that ten civilians were wounded in additional to the one who died.
However, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and multiple other sources blamed the regime. The Syrian Network for Human Rights also attributed the attacks to “government warplanes” which it said had “partially destroyed” the mosque.
Mamoun-sy said on Twitter that the person killed was a child. The Violations Documentation Center named one victim of “warplane shelling” as 17-year-old Mohammad Mahmoud Hijazi.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
