Last night, the local media in Aleppo reported that large fires broke out and a number of people were injured, as a result of the new targeting of primitive oil burners in the countryside of Aleppo Governorate.
The media reported that an unknown-source targeted the Al-Hamran area in the southwestern countryside of Jarablus.
Other media indicated that the bombing of the Al-Hamran area coincided with the fall of missiles on improvised incinerators for oil refining in the Tarheen area, east of the city of Al-Bab.
No one has claimed responsibility for these strikes.
