Russia escalates aerial bombardments | Ten Russian raids hit various areas in Idlib

Idlib province: Russian fighter jets continue to escalate bombardment on the “de-escalation” zone for the third consecutive day, targeting various areas of Idlib province.


SOHR reliable sources said that Russian fighter jets have so far carried out nearly ten airstrikes targeting the vicinity of Al-Sheikh Yusuf village in western Idlib countryside, the vicinity of the central prison near Idlib city and the vicinity of Sejer water station, which feeds Idlib city and its western villages, leaving the station out of action as pipes have been damaged.
Russian airstrikes also hit the eastern outskirts of Al-Arbaeen mountain and Harsh Masebeen in the vicinity of Ariha city near M4 “Aleppo-Latakia” International Highway.

Yesterday, SOHR activists documented the death of a woman and two children in airstrikes carried out by Russian fighter jets hitting makeshift tents of displaced people in Al-Nahr Al-Abyad area in the countryside of north Jisr Al-Shughur city, in west Idlib.

On the other hand, Russian fighter jets also bombed more than 12 areas in the vicinity of Idlib city and Jabal Al-Zawiyah south of Idlib.

“Al-Fath Al-Mubin” faction has counterattacked Russian airstrikes by intensive rocket fire on the regime’s positions in Jorin area in Hama countryside and the vicinity of Maarat Al-Numan in south Idlib countryside.
