Russian aircrafts kill nearly 90 civilians, one third of them children, with more than 930 airstrikes targeted “Putin-Erdogan” area in 40 days

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin reached a new agreement in late August on a new ceasefire within the so-called “de-escalation” zone from the north-eastern Latakia Mountains to the north-western suburbs of Aleppo city through the countryside of both Hama and Idlib.

However, the agreement was mere words on paper, so the Russian “guarantor” has not complied with it, where on September and October, its aircrafts carried out air strikes relatively limited and had killed 8 civilians, including one child girl and a woman, but the agreement was sidelined again like all the Russian-Turkish previous agreements, where Russian aircrafts returned to intensify their air strikes significantly at the beginning of November.

SOHR monitored Russian warplanes carrying out more than 930 airstrikes between November 2 and December 12, killing 89 civilians, including 30 children and 17 women, and injuring dozens of civilians, some seriously, some of them permanently disabled, with Russian forces carrying out 7 massacres in Idlib and western Aleppo during that period, moreover, that air strikes killed and wounded dozens of militant factions, Islamic and jihadi groups.
