Latest developments | 15 civilians killed in regime massacre in Al-Bab city

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that an elderly man died of the wounds he sustained in regime artillery fire on Al-Bab city this morning, bringing the total death toll to 15 civilians, including five children.


The bombardment also left 38 civilians, including women, children and elderly people, injured, some seriously, which may raise the death toll further.


A few hours ago, SOHR activists 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.


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


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.
