The relentless bombing campaign by the Assad regime and Russian forces have turned the town of Tamana’a in southern rural Idlib into a disaster area. Dozens of rockets and artillery shells have pummeled the area in the past 48 hours.
On Wednesday, the local council in Tamana’a said that the Assad regime and Russian forces hit the town with more than 300 artillery shells and rockets over the past two days.
Speaking to Smart News Agency, the local council pointed out that the shelling originated from the villages of Abu Omar and Ma’an where regime forces are stationed as well as the Russian bases in the villages of Abu al-Huda and Abu Dali.
The council added that the shelling had knocked out the majority of vital centers in the town, such as schools, medical centers, the municipality building, the police station, the water station and electricity networks. It noted that around 90 percent of the town is now lying in ruins.
In February, the local council declared the town a disaster area because of the ruthless bombings following similar declarations by the local councils in the towns of al-Tih and Jarjanaz.
The Assad regime and Russian forces continue to bomb Idlib and northern Hama despite the Idlib agreement.
