More and more civilians are losing their lives or getting displaced in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib as the Assad regime and Russia intensify airstrikes.
A total of 313 civilians, including 100 children, were killed, 1,843 others injured and 382,466 Syrians were forced to flee their homes since November 2019, according to data provided by a local rights group.
The strikes also targeted many civilian buildings including 48 mosques, three civil defense centers, one ambulance, nine health teams, 15 health facilities, 11 tent cities, eight water stations, 51 schools and 14 marketplaces, Syria's Response Coordination Group said on Wednesday (January 15).
The aggression by the regime and its allies have also caused considerable financial damage for Syrians, estimated to be at $322 million.
The majority of civilians fleeing attacks take shelter either near the Turkish border or in areas falling under territories following Operation Olive Branch or Operation Euphrates Shield.
Having fled deadly attacks, thousands of families are in dire need of humanitarian aid.
ON Wednesday, Assad warplanes and helicopters intensified bombardment on Idlib countryside, killing 21 civilians, including three children and injuring 82 others, including 19 children, violating a ceasefire announced by Russia and Turkish Defense Ministry on the 9th and 12th of January.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights SNHR documented in its report released on (January 1) 43 massacres committed by Assad regime's militias and 22 massacres committed by Russian forces in 2019.
The report documented the deaths of 3,364 civilians in 2019, including 842 children and 486 women at the hands of the perpetrator parties to the conflict in Syria, including 234 in December.
