Activists said that the mass exodus of civilians from the towns and villages of Idlib and Aleppo provinces is still continuing as a result of the brutal bombing campaign by the Assad regime and Russian forces.
The Emergency Response Coordinators Team on Tuesday said that at least 61,384 households, or 349,889 people, fled their homes in Idlib and Aleppo provinces in the past 20 days to escape the Assad regime and Russian forces’ onslaught. It noted that many of those people were displaced for up to six times.
The Team called for bringing an end to the military operations by the Assad regime and Russian forces, especially after they advanced on the outskirts of Idlib city which is home to more than 1.2 million people. It also called on international, regional, and local organizations to explicitly condemn the atrocious crimes against civilians.
The Syrian National Coalition earlier said that the international community is mainly to blame for what is happening in Idlib and Aleppo provinces in view of its failure to protect the region which is home to more than four million people. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
