Two civilians – a child and a woman – died in an airstrike on Maarat al Numan, according to local sources – though reports are conflicted as to whether this was the work of Russia or the Syrian regime.
LCCSY said that one civilian died and several others were wounded in a suspected Russian strike.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, “warplanes” carried out strikes on areas of Maarat al Numan, killing a child and injuring others – though it did not identify the planes.
A second SO4HR report said that “a woman was killed while others were wounded by aerial bombardment on Ma’ra al-Nu’man“, though it is currently unclear whether this is the same incident as the one previously reported.
However, the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed the regime, publishing an image of the remains of cluster ammunition which they said had been fired by “government forces”.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
