Six people killed and 17 others injured in Russian attack on oil market and primitive refineries in north-eastern Aleppo.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported a spike in death toll of the Russian rocket attack on an oil market and primitive oil refineries in the north-eastern countryside of Aleppo.
According to SOHR, six people were killed, including two unidentified, as a result of an attack with several rockets fired by Russian forces stationed in Hmeimim airbase on an oil market and primitive oil refineries in Al-Kusa village near Jarabulus city in areas controlled by Turkish-backed factions in north-eastern Aleppo.
The death toll is expected to rise further as the attack left over 17 persons injured, some seriously.
Yesterday, SOHR sources reported explosions in the north-eastern countryside of Aleppo, which is under the control of Turkish-backed factions, as a result of high-explosive rockets fired from the Russian base of “Hmeimim”, targeting oil market and primitive refineries in Al-Kusa village near Jarabulus city in Aleppo countryside, leaving three people dead and 18 others injured. The attack also caused significant material damage.

The airstrikes were coordinated with the Turkish government and left eight unidentified people dead, according to SOHR.
