Several civilians including at least four children were killed Wednesday, November 4 in Syria in strikes attributed to the regime of Bashar Al Assad, announced the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (OSDH).
According to a press release from this NGO, which has a large network of observers in Syria, at least 7 civilians including 4 children were killed in artillery fire from the Syrian regime on the province of Idleb, the last jihadist stronghold escaping the control of the Syrian regime.
“Intensive artillery strikes and rocket fire by regime forces on Wednesday morning against several sectors of Idleb killed seven civilians including four children,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (OSDH) adding that these strikes left 20 wounded, some of whom are in critical condition.
According to the director of OSDH, Rami Abdel Rahmane, these shootings took place mainly in the town of Ariha, where four civilians, including two children, were killed.
Bombing and artillery fire continue to be part of the daily life of many Syrians while a ceasefire is supposed to have been in force since March in Idleb province.
The region, which has at least 3 million inhabitants, has often been at the center of negotiations between Russia, Iran and Turkey, in order to find an agreement and avoid deadly bombings.
But the regime of Bashar Al Assad, supported by Russia, continues to carry out regular strikes in order to regain its full powers over this region which is beyond its control. But also the neighboring provinces of Hama, Aleppo and Lattakia.
