Seven civilians including three children died in airstrikes on Kafr Hamra according to local sources – though reports were conflicted as to whether this was the work of Russia or the regime.
According to Syrian Newsdesk more than fifteen Russian and regime warplane raids in the Kafr Hamra area resulted in the death of a family of four (the Al Ash family), including a pregnant woman and her foetus and a 7-year-old child. According to the newsdesk, the raids wounded five others, and “some of them are in a critical condition.” The Syrian Network for Human Rights, also blaming Russia, equally put the death toll at four.
The White Helmets didn’t identify the warplanes responsible but said that one woman died and seven other people were wounded, included children, after five strikes in the morning.
Tweets and other social media posts suggested the death toll was even higher.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
Family members (4)
- Mohammed Al Ash male killed

- unborn child, Khadija Al Hussein, of 9 months killed
- Son of Hamza Mohammed Al Ash 4 years years old killed
