Airwars assessment

Up to four civilians including one woman and one child died in an airstrike on Hraytan, according to local sources – though it’s unclear form reports whether Russia or the Syrian regime were responsible.

LCCSY, pointed towards Russia, saying that  one civilian died as a result of “shelling by vacuum missiles and cluster bombs“.

A later report by LCCSY said that a woman died.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights also attributed the incident to Moscow, putting the death toll at at least two.

But the Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed the regime. It  made no mention of civilian deaths but said that four Ahrar Asham militants were killed in shelling.

According to Anadan Media, warplanes dropped cluster bombs on Baghdad Street, though the source didn’t identify the culprit.

Both Step and Alburaq Media reported that four people died (with Alburaq Media blaming both Russia and the regime), however, neither source said whether the victims were non-combatants.

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
