Assad and Russian warplanes conducted dozens of airstrikes on towns and villages of Idlib countryside on Monday (August 19), Orient correspondent said.

The airstrikes hit several villages and towns, including Khan Sheikhoun, Kafranbel and Heish, causing severe destruction.

An air strike killed three Syrian civilians and injured 12 during transfer to Turkish observatory point No. 9 in Syria’s Idlib, according to Turkish Defense Ministry.

The best description of what is taking place in Idlib countryside today is the scorched-earth policy, according to Orient correspondent.

Yesterday, three civilians were killed, and 16 others were injured, including two White Helmets volunteers by Assad-Russian strikes in Idlib countryside.

Assad-Russian warplanes have committed dozens of massacres in Idlib and Hama countryside since they launched their bombing campaign on the 30th of April, largely violating the de-escalation zone deal reached between Russia and Turkey last September.
