Towns and villages of Idlib province have been subjected to intensified airstrikes by the Assad regime and Russian air forces which hit mainly civilian targets, especially medical centers, service centers and civil defense centers over the past few days.
Activists said that the airstrikes have killed 35 civilians, including 10 children and women, and injured dozens more in the past four days. The airstrikes targeted at least 13 towns and villages in Idlib province.
Activists pointed out that they had recorded no fewer than 75 airstrikes by the Assad regime and Russia forces since Wednesday, the most violent of which targeted hospitals and medical centers in rural Idlib. Many facilities were completely destroyed or damaged, including the Rahma and Orient hospitals, a maternity hospital, Tal Minnis hospital, and Haas hospital as well as a surgical hospital in the town of Kafranbel and a medical center in the town of Maarzeita.
In addition to civilian areas and medical centers, the airstrikes targeted other vital civilian centers, including schools, a civil defense center in the town of Khan Sheikhoun, a power station in the town of Kafrien, a civil defense center in the town of Kafranbel, and a school housing displaced people in the town of Habeet.
Media activists in the towns of Kansafra and Tamana’a confirmed that low-flying ballistic missiles hit several areas in southern rural Idlib. In a statement released on Friday, the Russian Defense Ministry said that Kalibr cruise missiles were launched from the Mediterranean by Russia’s ‘Veliky Novgorod’ submarine against targets in the north of the Hama province.
