Assad Regime & Russia Killed Hundreds & Displaced Half Million People in Hama & Idlib

The Assad regime and Russian bombing campaign in Idlib and Hama provinces killed around 700 people, including 203 children and displaced tens of thousands more over the past month.

The Emergency Response Coordinators Team in Northern Syria on Sunday said that more than 697 civilians, including 203 children, were killed in the ongoing bombing campaign by the Assad regime and Russian forces.

In its assessment of the situation on the ground in the de-escalation zone in northwestern Syria in the period between February 2 and June 9, the Team noted that more than 503,509 people have been displaced from their homes. It added that it continues to track the movement of the displaced persons and to assess their needs, especially following the increasing number of random IDP camps and those staying rough in the open

According to the Team, the Assad regime and its Russian ally bombed no fewer than 183 vital civilian centers between February 2 and June 9, including 57 medical centers, six civil defense centers, 71 educational facilities, seven IDP camps, 31 mosques, and 11 bakeries.

The Team called on all humanitarian groups to urgently respond to the needs of the displaced people. It also called on international bodies concerned with Syria to put an end to attacks against civilians in Idlib province.

The province of Idlib as well as the adjacent parts of the countryside of Hama, Aleppo and Lattakia have been subjected to an escalating bombing campaign by the Assad regime and Russian forces since late April in an attempt to recapture these areas.

The Syrian Coalition earlier condemned these attacks as it called on the international community to intervene urgently to stop the military operations against civilians and to provide protection for them. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
