Multiple sources reported that one woman and three children were killed in an alleged Russian or Syrian regime airstrike on Jaideen.

The Shaam News Network said that “Russian raids  targeted the town of Jai’deen leading to the death of four martyrs – a woman and three of her children”.

However, the Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that “government warplanes” were responsible.

According to Souriat and Almaghribtoday, three children and their grandmother died. Both sources blamed Russia.

But other sources including Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights didn’t identify the warplanes responsible.
