Russian fighter jets carried out Sunday at dawn deadly airstrikes on Kafrenbel city, to the south of Idlib, killing and injuring a number of civilians and causing vast damage to properties. Eight airstrikes by Russian warplanes hit Kafrenbel city west of Ma’aret al-Nu’man.


The heaviest airstrikes were two overnight strikes that caused huge damage to civilians’ home mid-town and left seven civilians killed and others injured, field sources told Orient Net.

Rescue volunteers of the White Helmets rushed to the attack site to rescue the wounded and pull out bodies buried under the rubble. As the volunteers were working, Assad warplanes hit the site again, using cluster bombs, which led to the injury of a number of the civil defense volunteers.'>(Civil defense volunteers searching the rubble to pull out bodies and injured civilians - Photo: SCD)
