The ongoing bombing campaign by the Russian and Assad regime forces has forced nearly one million people from their homes in northwestern Syria in less than four months.
The Syrian Civil Defense Corps said that the aerial bombardment and shelling forced more than 932,000 people to flee their homes between November 2019 and February 19 2020.
According to figures compiled by the rescue group, the Russian and Assad regime forces carried out thousands of attacks with more than 11,126 missiles, rockets, and bombs in Idlib, Aleppo, and Hama provinces since the beginning of 2020. The Assad regime and Russian forces carried out at least 2,201 airstrikes, 32 attacks with the use of internationally prohibited cluster bombs, 605 barrel bomb attacks, and 8,000 attacks with heavy artillery.
The Syrian National Coalition earlier called on the peoples of the world, civil and human rights organizations, civil society organizations and activists everywhere to exert pressure on their governments to ensure an end to the brutal onslaught on northwestern Syria and to implement international resolutions and laws.
Idlib and western rural Aleppo have been subjected to a ferocious bombing campaign by the Russian and Assad regime forces. The assault has killed and injured hundreds of civilians and displaced hundreds of thousands more from their towns and villages as well as resulted in the destruction of tens of vital civilian centers such as, markets, schools, mosques and medical facilities.
