Al-Bab massacre | Over 50 civilian casualties in regime bombardment on market and residential neighbourhoods

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have confirmed the increase of the number of casualties due to the massacre committed by regime forces which shelled an outdoors market and residential neighbourhoods in Al-Bab city in Aleppo countryside with artillery to over 50 civilians. Until now, SOHR activists have documented the death of 14 civilians, including five children, and the injury of 38 others, including women, children and elderly people.

 

It is worth noting that this is the most horrific massacre of those committed by regime forces in months.

 

Observatory sources have just reported a spike in the number of civilians who were killed and wounded in regime artillery fire on an outdoors market and residential neighbourhoods in Al-Bab city in Aleppo countryside, where the death of nine civilians, including children, was confirmed. In addition, 30 other civilians sustained various injuries and taken to hospitals in Al-Bab city.

 

SOHR sources confirmed that the artillery shells were fired from regime positions in the northern countryside of Aleppo as a response to the killing of regime soldiers in airstrikes by Turkish fighter jets on positions in Ain Al-Arab countryside a few days ago.
