Fourth anniversary of Atareb massacre | Russian airstrikes left over 80 Syrian people dead in one of the most horrific massacres in Syria
Yesterday, November 13, the Syrian people marked the fourth anniversary of one of the most horrific massacres in Syrian territory during the Syrian war, when Russian fighter jets struck, with high-explosive missiles, al-Atareb market in west Aleppo countryside. The massacre occurred in the afternoon of Monday, November 13, 2017, and left 82 Syrians dead, including five children among them there were four siblings, seven females, seven prisoners in a prison of the “free police” and 13 free police officers. The massacre also left dozens of people injured, some of them suffered permanent disabilities by the intensive Russian airstrikes, according to SOHR activists.
By commemorating the anniversary of al-Atareb massacre, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights would like to point out that the killing of Syrian people by Russian forces continues, more than a decade after the first spark of the “Syrian Revolution”.
A few days ago, exactly on November 11, Russian fighter jets committed a massacre which left five civilians, a man, his wife, two of their children and the man’s little nephew, dead on the outskirts of Broma and al-Habbat junction in northern Idlib.
