At least 10 Syrian civilians were killed and dozens were injured in the Russian air bombing of a refugee camp on the border between Jordan and Syria, according to local sources in Amman, which confirm what has been already reported by the National Observatory for Human Rights in Syria (Ondus). The latter mentioned three civilians who were killed, including two children, and more deaths among the anti-Isis militiamen.
Jordanian sources say that Russian air raids have been conducted in the Hadalat, where there is a settlement of refugees in the desert between the Syrian region of Dayr az Zor and the Jordanian border. Ondus, for its part, says that the provisional death toll is at three, including two children- Besides, dozens of people were wounded. Some Syrian militiamen, members of the “Army of the Group of Eastern Syria Leoni” (Usud Jaysh ash-Sharqiya) who claim to fight Isis, were killed too.
The Observatory argued this morning that the death toll could get worse in the coming hours. Ondus claims that the raids were carried out against the settlement of Hammad, which hosts Syrian anti-Isis militiamen and their families. According to Jordanian sources, there are about 60 thousand displaced Syrians who fled from war in the eastern and central regions and who were trapped in the desert steppe near the border (closed) with Jordan.
