Evacuation of bodies and injured people from under the rubble of a collapsed residential building in Aleppo’s Sheikh Maqsoud neighbourhood continues, with several pro-regime media outlets reporting that the death toll is increasing over time.
According to pro-regime media, including Sham FM, the death toll of the collapsed building in the Sheikh Maqsoud neighbourhood rose from 10 people to 17 people, and three were injured.
Local pages indicated that civil defence teams have been working since early morning to remove rubble to remove those trapped from under them in the Sheikh Maqsoud neighbourhood, which is under the control of the SDF and besieged by the Assad militia. The number of residents of the building is estimated at 35 people, including women and children.
The Interior Ministry of the Assad militia announced the recovery of only one person alive, noting that the residential building, consisting of five floors, collapsed at three o’clock in the morning and was inhabited by seven families.
There have often been repeated incidents of building collapses in Aleppo and other areas due to crazy bombardment by Assad’s militias and the Russian occupation years ago.
