Four civilians died in an airstrike on Kafr Hamra, according to local sources – though reports were conflicted as to whether Russia or the Syrian regime were to blame.
The Shaam News Network, reported that 21 civilians died in Aleppo “in the first day of Ramadan in regime and Russian bombing“. It put the death toll in Kafr Hamra at four civilians.
The White Helmets said there had been two raids at noon, killing four civilians, and also setting fire to shops, but they did not say who the “warplanes” belonged to.
However, the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed “suspected Russian warplanes” and put the death toll at three.
According to Syriapost1, Russian warplanes used “internationally-prohibited phosphorous bombs”.
But the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the regime was responsible for raids on Aleppo neighborhoods (including Kafr Hamra) which had killed 17 civilians.
A number of other sources, including SHRC didn’t identify the warplanes responsible.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
