Three civilians from one family died and several others were injured when farmlands at Kafr Jaless were hit with airstrikes, said reports by local media – though sources were conflicted as to whether this was the work of Russia or the Assad regime.

According to Syrian Press Center, “Russian warplanes launched air strikes on houses in the village of Kafr Jalis” resulting in the deaths of “three civilians from one family – the father, mother and child”, in addition to the injury of several more people.

NesreenAlfera and Omaralmarawi also reported Russian raids.

LCCSY did not say who was responsible for the attack, however, the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed the Syrian regime.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
