At least one person was killed and 11 others injured Wednesday in two airstrikes carried out on civilian settlements in northern Syria’s al-Bab region, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

The strikes were carried out by a Russian warplane, according to a Syrian military opposition group.

The injured, including children, were taken to hospitals.

Several ambulances were dispatched to the scene, and the White Helmets civil defense group continue search and rescue work in the wreckage of the destroyed buildings.

Turkish troops and the Syrian National Army (SNA) captured Al-Bab from in February 2017, as part of Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield.
