Activists said that at least 19 civilians, including women and children, were killed and dozens more wounded in airstrikes believed to be carried out by the Russian air force on the village of Almehemdiya in western rural Deir Ezzor.
The Syrian Coalition strongly condemned the attack on Almehemdiya and the targeting of civilians across Syria, especially the escalating Russian aggression on Syria after rebels managed to break the siege on Aleppo.
The Coalition rejected any and all excuses used to justify the bombings in Syria, stressing that targeting civilians, including women and children, cannot not be justified by fighting terror. Whether it was with a knife or an aircraft, any attack on civilians is terrorism pure and simple, the Coalition added.
Meanwhile, over 10 civilians were also killed and 18 more wounded in Russian airstrikes and barrel bomb attacks on the neighborhoods of Karam Alnozha and Tal Alzarazir in Aleppo on Tuesday.
Activists in Daraya west of Damascus said that the rebel-held district was pounded with a barrage of barrel bombs as well as artillery and rocket shells, while violent clashes between FSA fighters and regime forces on the outskirts of the district were reported. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
