Russian warplanes and Assad helicopters intensified bombardment on Aleppo and Idlib countryside on Monday (February 3), killing 12 civilians, including six children and four women and injuring civilians, including children and women, Orient correspondent said.
A Russian warplane killed nine forcibly displaced civilians from the same family in their minibus, including four children and three women near Kafr Naha town in Aleppo countryside as they were fleeing Assad-Russian bombardment.
Meanwhile, the warplanes targeted civilian homes in Bala area near Kafr Naha town, killing two children and a woman.
The warplanes also targeted civilian homes in al-Atarib town, injuring nine civilians, including women and children.
In Idlib countryside, two White Helmets volunteers were injured as a result of a double airstrike that targeted them in Afis town on Monday afternoon.
On Sunday, Russian warplanes and Assad helicopters killed 16 civilians, including five children and four women and injuring 23 others, including six children and four women in Idlib and Aleppo countryside.
On Wednesday midnight Russian warplanes bombed al-Shami Hospital, a bakery and civilian homes in the city of Ariha in Idlib countryside, killing 13 civilians, including a doctor, four children and six women and injuring 68 others, including 13 children and 15 women.
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.
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.
