Assad and Russian warplanes are still targetting cities and towns in Idlib, causing casualties and extensive damage in civilian neighbourhoods, Orient News correspondent says.  

The airstrikes hit the city of Khan Sheikhoun, the town of Kafranbel, the town of Besida, the town of Maaret Hormeh, the town of Bedameh, Jamil al-Hasen said.   

On Wednesday (July 31), two children were killed by Assad-Russian strikes in the village of Kafr Zirba near the town of Ariha in the south of Idlib.

Idlib is within the de-escalation zone deal reached by Russia and Turkey last September. 

Opposition fighters and anti-Assad factions control the largest opposition-held area with a population swollen by Syrians displaced by Assad terrorists and their allies from other parts of the country.
