Four Children Injured in Assad Regime Shelling on Southern Idlib

Four children from one family were wounded in violent rocket shelling by the Assad regime forces on southern rural Idlib on Thursday.

The Syrian Civil Defense said that the Assad regime forces stationed east of the town of Khan Sheikoun shelled the village of Al-Tih with rockets, injuring an adult and four children. It said that its rescue teams rushed the injured to medical centers for treatment.

Local activists said that the Assad regime also shelled the villages of Khalsa, Zamar, and Hamira in southern rural Aleppo with heavy artillery. The shelling caused the minaret of a mosque in the village of Zammar to collapse and caused damage to civilian property.

In northern rural Hama, the Assad regime forces carried out artillery shelling on the outskirts of the towns of Kafrzeita, Lataminha, Zakat, Hasraya, and Janabra, without reports of civilian casualties.

The province of Idlib and the surrounding areas come under frequent rocket and artillery shelling by the Assad regime forces and aerial bombardment by the Russian air force. The shelling is causing many civilian casualties although the area is covered by the Russian-Turkish agreement calling for a halt to the shelling in the area.
