Activists on Wednesday said that a civilian was wounded in shelling by regime forces on rural Idlib. The suffering of civilians in the IDP camps in northwestern was compounded by torrential rain that swept the region on Tuesday. Dozens of households were left without shelter after the heavy rain flooded their tents.
Local activists appealed for aid in the wake of the rainstorm that hit the IDP camps in the region. The civil defense teams responded by draining the floods and erecting berms to prevent water from flooding the tents.
The heavy rain coincided with the Assad regime and its allies’ continued military escalation in Idlib province. A civilian was injured in rocket shelling by the Assad regime forces that targeted the town of Bdama on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Emergency Response Coordinators Team in Northern Syrian on Tuesday said that 3,126 families were affected by the rainstorm while dozens of households were displaced from their homes.

Two civilians were wounded in an explosion of IED that hit their vehicle in the town of Jisr al-Shughour. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
