Around 36,000 more civilians have fled their homes falling inside the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria over the last two days and the number of displaced civilians reached 450,000 since November 2019 due to attacks of the regime and its allies.

According to Syria's Response Coordination Group, the displaced civilians headed to areas near the Turkish border due to the attacks which violate a cease-fire agreement between Turkey and Russia.

Mohammad Hallaj, the director of the group, told Anadolu Agency that the civilians left their homes in Darat Izzah, Atarib, Haiian, Hraytan, Anadan, Khan Tuman, Khan al-Asal, Kafr Naya, and al-Qasimia due to attacks supported by Russian air strikes.

As a result of Assad regime and Russia forces’ attacks, 36,007 civilians, consisting 11,691 families, became homeless in the last two days.
