Airwars assessment

Two children were killed in airstrikes on Anjara, according to local sources – though reports were conflicted and confused as to whether this was the work of Russia or the Syrian Regime.

LCCSY initially reported that the strikes were Russian, killing two children and wounding other civilians when homes were targeted with cluster bombs.

However, in a second report it  changed its position and attributed the incident to the regime.

The Shaam News Network also initially blamed “Assad’s warplanes and helicopters” –

but they later alleged that Russia was responsible.

According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights – who blamed the regime – the two children killed were from the same family.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also mentioned the incident and the death of two children, but didn’t identify the “warplanes” responsible.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
