Reacting to Ariha massacre | “Al-Fath al-Mubin” factions start intensive rocket fire on regime positions in Hama and Idlib countryside
SOHR activists have reported intensive rocket attacks by factions of “al-Fath al-Mubin” operations room, which targeted regime positions in al-Dana, Khan al-Sabil, Dadikh, Tel al-Rumman and other positions in the southern and south-eastern countryside of Idlib. The rebels’ rocket fire also targeted positions in the western countryside of Hama. However, no casualties have been reported.
This intensive rocket fire comes as a reaction to the massacre committed by regime forces stationed in Hursh Khan al-Sabil in southern Saraqeb, which bombarded Ariha city in southern Idlib with rockets this morning, killing 13 people, including four children and one woman at lease.
SOHR sources 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 were unidentified and 24 persons were wounded seriously. Deaths were 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 was the largest since the ceasefire in the de-escalation zone that was reached in a meeting of Putin and Erdoghan on March 5, 2020.
SOHR sources in the “de-escalation zone” documented earlier in the morning a new massacre in the early morning in Idlib province. SOHR initial reports confirmed that eight people, including two children and a female, were killed in rocket fire by regime forces on Ariha city in the southern countryside of Idlib, while the innocent civilians were heading to their work and schools. The death toll is expected to rise further as the attack left at least 26 persons injured, some seriously. There were unconfirmed reports of more casualties.
