Assad Regime & Allies’ Crimes & Violations Against Civilians in Idlib Continue
January 4, 2018
The Syrian Coalition condemns the continued airstrikes and artillery shelling on southern rural Idlib by regime forces and their allied Iranian militias and the Russian occupation warplanes.
Airstrikes and artillery shelling have killed and wounded dozens of civilians in the towns of Maarat al-Nu'man and Tal al-Tuqan. The death toll continue to rise as aerial and artillery shelling continues to tartget the towns of Kafranbel, Khan Sheikhoun, Sinjar, Saraqib and other towns and villages in rural Idlib.
The bombing campaign in Idlib, now in its third week, continues to target civilians and commit war crimes in violation of all agreements reached in Syria. The Assad regime and its allies are exploiting the silence of the international community and its failure to shoulder its responsibilities towards the protection of civilians and the maintaining of peace and security.
