A little girl killed in Jabal Al-Zawiya as regime and Russian jets step up bombardment on south Idlib countryside
SOHR activists documented the killing of a little girl in Russian aerial airstrikes on Juzif village in Jabal Al-Zawiya.
Meanwhile, regime and Russian jets continue intensive bombardment on Idlib province bringing the number of today’s airstrikes to 60. The airstrikes pounded places in Kafr Nubl, Al-bara, Ihsim, Binin, Al-Fatirah, Sarja, Ibbin, Juzif and other places in Jabal Al-Zawiya in the southern countryside of Idlib. Also the same areas were intensively shelled by rockets.
It is suggested that the regime and Russian escalating bombardment on Jabal Al-Zawiya and Jabal Shashaboo is paving the way for an expected ground operation there. Such operation comes at a time when regime forces seek to reach Aleppo – Latakia highway (M4), starting from south Idlib, after blocking the highway’s outlets from the eastern countryside of Idlib by Turkish forces.
SOHR sources reported this morning that Russian jets executed several raids this morning targeting areas in Ihsim, Binin, Ftira, Ibbin, Al-Bara and Sarja in Jabal Al-Zawiya. They also targeted places nearby Atarib after midnight with several airstrikes.
Separately, regime forces shelled places in Deir Sunbul, Kafr Nubl, Hass and Basqala in Idlib countryside, the vicinity and outskirts of Atarib and Darat Izza, west of Aleppo city.
On the other hand, SOHR activists monitored exchange of fire in Al-Nayrab frontline in the east of Idlib, between regime forces on one hand, and Turkish forces and opposition factions on the other. No information about casualties has been reported so far.
