Latakia provisional council said it has erected camps for internally displaced people in northern rural Latakia who were forced to flee their homes as a result of the brutal Russian airstrikes on the villages of Turkmen Mount over the past few days.
Civil defense teams also provided aid to displaced people and set up tents in the safe villages.
At a press conference held earlier today, President Khoja said that Russia has recently stepped up air raids on rural Latakia, Aleppo, Dara’a and Douma. 2,977 civilians have been killed across Syria since the Russian aggression began 53 days ago. 550 of these were killed in Russian air strikes that have reached up to 2,943 so far. Three schools, 14 hospitals, a pharmaceutical plant and food factory were targeted by the Russian air force.
President Khoja added that barely 6% of the overall Russian air strikes on Syria have targeted ISIS, warning that the refugee crisis will worsen if Russian aggression continues. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
