On August 19, 2022, al Bab city in the eastern suburbs of Aleppo governorate was subjected to multiple strikes by approximately six missiles. SNHR has so far been unable to identify the source of the missiles, though we believe that they were fired either by Syrian regime forces or by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) since the strike came from an area jointly controlled by both. Investigations are underway to determine the party responsible for the attack.

The missiles hit several areas in the city, killing at least 14 civilians, including six children, and wounding over 30 others. Most of the victims were killed or wounded by the explosion of one of the missiles which hit the crowded four-way intersection known as al Khamis Local Market, in the city’s al Sharqi neighborhood. The attack also caused severe damage to the targeted areas.
