Idlib province has been subjected to relentless bombing campaign by the Assad regime and Russian forces since November 25, 2019. Warplanes targeted residential areas and public facilities with dozens of bombs and cluster munitions, resulting in civilian casualties and the displacement of thousands of households.
Local activists said that 13 people, including eight children and two women, were killed on Sunday and dozens were wounded as a result of fierce aerial bombardment by the Assad regime’s air force which targeted southern and eastern rural Idlib.
The Syrian Civil Defense said that airstrikes on the town of Ariha in Idlib countryside resulted in the destruction of a school, a mosque and a kindergarten.
At least 12 airstrikes hit the town of Saraqib on Monday morning, mainly targeting residential neighborhoods. The rescue group said it rescued seven people, including two children and a woman, as well as dug the body of a woman who was killed in the bombing.
Rights groups earlier said that more than 300,000 civilians have so far been displaced from their homes as a result of bombardment and shelling by the Assad regime forces with Russian aerial support. The displaced people sought refuge in around 34 towns and villages in northern rural Idlib and Aleppo. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
