The Emergency Response Coordinators in northern Syria said more than 7,000 families have fled their homes in Idlib and Hama province since the beginning of this month because of the intensified shelling by the Assad regime and its allies.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Coordinators said that around 7,526 families have been displaced by the intensified shelling, adding that the displaced people restored to around 66 villages, towns and IDP camps in northern Syria.
Local activists pointed out that relentless rocket and artillery shelling killed five people and injured dozens more in the town of Khan Sheikoun in rural Idlib on Tuesday. The shelling also hit several other towns and villages in rural Idlib and Hama.
The shelling came as part of an intensified bombing campaign by the Assad regime and the Iranian militias under Russian cover in the areas covered by the Idlib Agreement. The Syrian Coalition said that attacks violating the existing agreements must be condemned by everyone. It also said that guarantors should closely follow the situation on the ground and intervene to save civilians and prevent further violations.
The Coalition also said that the shelling is targeting mainly populated areas, deliberately killing civilians and spreading terror and chaos in the area. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
