Russian warplanes intensified bombardment on Saturday (October 19) on the demilitarized zone (DMZ) in Idlib countryside, killing and injuring civilians, violating a ceasefire announced by Russia on the 31st of August, Orient correspondent said.
The warplanes targeted a civilian home in the surrounding of Taftanaz town, killing at least a man and a woman and injuring other civilians, including civilians, including children.
Meanwhile, the warplanes bombed Taftanaz Military Airbase, Maarzita village and Hizareen town with more than 30 airstrikes.

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.
