Assad regime's militias shelled on Saturday (February 16) the town of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib southern countryside, killing and injuring civilians, Orient News correspondent said.

At least ten civilians have been killed and many others injured by Saturday artillery shells and missiles in Khan Sheikhoun and Ma'aret al-Nu'aman, local sources confirmed.

Saturday attacks came after similar Assad missiles killed on Friday at least 9 civilians, women and children.     

The city of Khan Sheikhoun and other cities in Idilb southern countryside and Hama northern countryside  are included in the the Sochi de-escalation deal reached by Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russia's Vladmir Putin last December.
