The Inab Biladi local newspaper said that shop owners in the town of Saraqib in rural Idlib were forced to close their shops for fear of the relentless shelling by the Assad regime forces targeting vital civilian centers and residential areas in the region.
The newspaper added that the shelling is originating from the regime-held towns of Sinjar, Abu Adduhour, and Abu Dali, noting that the fear of shelling brought life in the town of Sarqib to a standstill and forced the townsmen to skip the Friday congregational prayers.
The Assad regime has intensified rocket and artillery shelling in Idlib province since early February in violation of the Idlib agreement calling for a ceasefire.
The Syrian Coalition stressed that the relentless bombings were aimed at undermining all chances of reaching a real political solution in accordance with international resolutions, most notably the Geneva Communique and UN resolution 2254. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
