Reacting to regime massacre in Sahl al-Ghab | Opposition faction shell regime positions in Hama and Idlib countryside
SOHR sources have reported rocket attacks carried out by opposition factions this morning, targeting regime positions in Maarrat al-Nu’man city in the southern countryside of Idlib and Jurin in the western countryside of Hama, but no casualties have been reported. This bombardment came as a response to yesterday’s artillery fire by regime forces on Qastoun, which left a family of nearly ten people dead and wounded.
SOHR sources reported earlier this morning that one of the people documented among the fatalities of the massacre committed by regime forces in Qastoun in Sahl al-Ghab was still alive, as he had been retrieved from under the rubble. However, he was in a serious condition. Accordingly, the number of fatalities documented by SOHR were four sibling children. SOHR activists also documented the injury of five other people of the same family. It is worth noting that these civilians were killed and injured due to regime rocket fire on Qastoun town in Sahl al-Ghab in the north-western countryside of Hama.
Last night, SOHR sources documented the death of two persons and injury of six others of the same family due to regime rocket fire on Qastoun town in Sahl al-Ghab in the north-western countryside of Hama.
SOHR sources had reported that regime forces shelled, with heavy artillery, the perimeter of a Turkish military post in Ziadiyah village in the countryside of Jisr al-Shughur in western Idlib. However, no casualties were reported.
Meanwhile, the villages of al-Mashyak, al-Mansoura and al-Ankawi in Sahl al-Ghab in the northwestern countryside of Hama came under attack with dozens of shells fired by regime forces stationed in the west of Sahl al-Ghab.
On the other hand, clashes with heavy machineguns erupted on al-Faterah frontline between regime forces and the factions operating in the southern countryside of Idlib. However, no casualties were reported.
