Syrian regime bombardment kills 14 civilians including two rescuers
Syrian regime bombardment killed at least 14 civilians, including two rescue workers in an ambulance and seven children, in embattled north-west Syria on Thursday.
The children were killed in various areas of the opposition-run Idlib province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.
A regime air strike targeted an ambulance in the town of Maaret al Noman, killing two rescue workers inside, in the latest deadly bombardment on the wider region.
The Benefsej aid organisation said two of its workers had been killed. “It was a direct targeting of the ambulance, killing two” aid workers, said Fouad Issa, a member of the charity’s management board.
A woman also died in the ambulance while she was being transported for treatment, he added.
Notably, the Syrian regime bombardment killed at least 17 civilians in Idlib on Wednesday.
