Continued bombing by the Assad regime and its allies is endangering the lives of civilians in the liberated areas. Local activists have highlighted the UN Security Council’s failure to make a decisive commitment in holding the Assad regime responsible for its utilization of chemical weapons against Syrian civilians in eastern Ghouta, Damascus, back in August 2013. This failure has effectively encouraged the Assad regime to resume bombing in these liberated zones.
On Wednesday, the forces of the Assad regime, along with Russia and their allied militias, targeted residential neighborhoods, IDP camps, and civilian vehicles using artillery shells and guided missiles across various areas in rural Aleppo and Idlib. These attacks resulted in the deaths of two civilians, while leaving numerous others injured.
The Syrian Civil Defense has reported that one civilian was killed and five others, including a woman and three children, sustained injuries due to a rocket attack originating from regions controlled by the regime forces and the PYD militia. This attack was aimed at the Kuwait al-Rahma camp for displaced individuals in the rural outskirts of Afrin, located in northwestern Aleppo.
Furthermore, the Civil Defense has revealed that another civilian lost their life and a child was wounded in artillery shelling conducted by the regime forces and Russia. This shelling was targeted at residential areas within the village of Tadil, situated to the west of Aleppo.
The ongoing attacks on civilians persist due to the absence of effective deterrence measures and the complete lack of accountability, alongside the absence of substantial actions by the international community to halt these heinous acts against civilians in the liberated areas.
