Death toll update | Over 12 civilians killed and injured in regime rocket fire on village in south Idlib countryside

SOHR activists have confirmed the death of six civilians due to rocket attacks by regime forces and loyal militiamen on Sarjeh village in southern Idlib. The breakdown of fatalities were as follows: three children, a woman, a man and a volunteer of the civil defence. The rocket attacks also left seven other civilians and volunteers of the civil defence injured.

 

A few hours ago, SOHR activists reported a spike in the number of fatalities due to rocket attacks by regime forces and loyal militiamen on Sarjeh village in southern Idlib, as five people, including a woman and three children, have been killed so far. According to SOHR sources, there were many people under the rubble, while rescue teams were working on retrieving them.

 

SOHR sources had reported that regime forces and militiamen loyal to Russian and regime forces targeted a position in Sarjeh villahe in the southern countryside of Idlib with a Russian-made guided missile, before they targeted the same position with another guided missile, as rescue teams were on there way to the targeted site. SOHR initial reports confirmed the death of a civilian woman and two little girls due to these rocket attacks, while other people were stuck under the rubble.

 

Moreover, regime forces shelled positions in Bayanin, Fulayfel and al-Faterah in southern Idlib and other positions in Sahl al-Ghab in the north-western Hama countryside.

 

This development came at a time when Bashar al-Assad was getting ready to take the “constitutional oath” for a new presidential term.
