Orient news also blamed Russia, putting the death toll at one.

According to Alaraby, a “warplane thought to be Russian launched missile on kafr Hamra and killed a civilian and injured seven.”

Baladi put the death toll at five killed and said that buildings were also destroyed in the alleged Russian strike.
