More than ten civilians were killed and tens left injured today in the district of Bustan al-Qasr (Aleppo), in another bloody day which witnessed the death of more than 50 civilians in Syria.
This took place after a helicopter dropped explosive barrels at the beginning of the Karraj al-Hajz street, next to Bustan al-Qasr, leading to the death of a man and the injury of seven others. After the families gathered in order to help transport the injured, a warplane dropped a rocket on the same place, resulting in a high number of victims and injured.
Names of the victims documented so far:
Zukoor Jaleilati (19 years)
Mustafa Mohammed Dabbagh (18 years)
Mahmoud Dano Hussari (19 years)
Ahmed Daqqaq (19 years)
Mustafa Abdulrazzaq Arab (13 years)
Maher Tamer (35 years)
The Bustan al-Qasr massacre comes in the wake of an ongoing campaign against the city of Aleppo which has been running for weeks, in which explosive barrels and air strikes are being initiated against the city. This campaign has resulted in the death of at least 2500 civilians- if not more- and has left thousands injured, as well as leaving an epic scale of destruction behind.
