Largest massacre in de-escalation zone March 2020 | 13 killed in regime forces ground attack in southern Idlib
Idlib province: SOHR activists have reported rise of deaths to 13 including three kids and a female, in regime forces rocket attack in the morning on Ariha city in the southern countryside of Idlib. Meanwhile three persons are still unidentified and 24 persons have been wounded seriously. Deaths are expected to rise because the attack happened while the children were heading to schools and the old to their work.
It is worth noting that the massacre is the largest since the ceasefire in the de-escalation zone that was reached in a meeting of Putin and Erdoghan on March 5, 2020.
Yesterday, SOHR activists reported renewed airstrikes by Russian jets, after suspension of aerial operations for a week. The Russian fighter jets executed three airstrikes on the perimeter of the Turkish military post in al-Barah in Jabal al-Zawiyah in the southern countryside of Idlib, as the Russian missiles hit positions a few metres away from the Turkish post. However, no casualties were reported.
On the other hand, regime forces bombarded positions in Sarjeh, Quqfin in the southern countryside of Idlin and Kafr Ta’al in the western countryside of Aleppo with Russian-made shells “Krasinball”, killing an opposition fighter and injuring four others in Quqfin.
