Four civilians killed in regime airstrikes on rural Idlib

SOHR activists documented four civilian fatalities in regime bombardment on Idlib countryside: a man and his wife was killed in bombardment by barrel bombs on bazabour town, a young man was killed due to barrel bombs dropped by helicopters on Maardebseh village, and a child who was killed in regime airstrikes on Saraqib town.

On the other hand, regime and Russian aircraft are continuing to target several areas in both Idlib and Aleppo. SOHR activists documented nearly 86 raids executed by Russian jets targeting places south of Aleppo and its western countryside, Maarrat Al-Nu’man, Maarshourin, Maraand and Kafr Nubl in both Idlib and Aleppo countryside.

Also, regime jets carried out more than 68 airstrikes on Khan Al-Sabil, Dadikh, Saraqib, and other areas in the south-eastern countryside of Idlib.

For their part, regime helicopters dropped 56 barrel bombs on Maarrat Al-Nu’man countryside and areas in the eastern countryside of Idlib.

Meanwhile, jihadi groups fired rockets on regime positions in Kafr Zita city, north of Hama.

Hours ago, regime soldiers and loyalists captured new villages and towns after blocking the M5 highway, putting the area between Khan Al-Sabil town and Maarrat Al-Nu’man city under firearm. They also captured Al-Dana town and wrapped around Maarrat Al-Nu’man city cutting off the factions’ supply routs west of the city and controlling Hantutin and Banin villages by firearm.
