Bir Mahle Parallel

It could be just the name similarity, but this incident reminds me of the time U.S.-led airstrikes allegedly killed over 50 civilians in Bir Mahle, Aleppo. In that case, I mostly believe US-Kurdish assurances that civilians were evacuated first, but also believe civilians were there under the bombs, and Islamic State trickery did that - snuck people back in at the last minute in a move that looked like Daesh fighters taking up residence there (see The Blame for Ber Mahli). Name coincidence aside, this would be my suspicion here too, if in fact Russian bombs killed these people (which remains doubtful). --Caustic Logic (talk) 05:47, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
