Government forces bombed a heavily-crowded market shortly before the call for Al Maghrib Prayer. This isn’t the first time government forces deliberately target markets.
Ahmad, an eyewitness and a local resident, told SNHR about what happened:
“The city market was crowded, as it is usually is before the call for Al Maghrib Prayer. The residents were shopping for Iftar food. Suddenly, mortar shells fell on the market. We found out later that the shells were 180mm. I saw tens of martyrs falling before my eyes and many were wounded. I saw children bodies covered in blood.”
