70% of the civilians have left Khan Sheikhoun town towards Idlib city and towards the camps near the Syrian-Turkish borders, Orient correspondent added.

On Tuesday, Assad regime’s rockets shelled civilian homes in Khan Sheikhoun, killing five civilians and injuring  five other civilians.

Assad militias have repeatedly shelled the towns and villages of Idlib countryside over the past two weeks, causing civilian causalities and destroying civilian homes.
