Syrian Observatory activists in the “de-escalation” zone have monitored renewed shelling by regime forces on areas in Idlib countryside, where regime forces have fired heavy artillery shells on areas in Fulayfel, Bayannin, and the vicinity of Al-Fatirah in Jabal Al-Zawiyah, south of Idlib. No casualties have been reported.

This attack coincides with the flights by a Russian reconnaissance aircraft in the airspace of Jabal Al-Zawiyah and Sahl Al-Ghab in north-west Hama countryside.


On April 11, SOHR activists reported that factions members shot a regime soldier dead in Al-Barij frontline in southern Idlib. In the same context, regime forces fired heavy artillery shells on “Putin-Erdogan” area, hitting Mara’at Al-Na’san town and its vicinity and Al-Fatera village in Idlib countryside. However, no casualties were reported.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, artillery shelling also targeted Maarat al-Naasan and Kafr Nuran.
