You can't see active bombing missions from a satillite. You can see craters if they are large enough and thats about it. Worse still you can't really sport lightly armed forces at all.

So at best you could say that there was no bombing using heavy bombs that hit residential areas but you couldn't rule out lighter bombs or strafing.
