Field and local developments:

On Saturday, a suspected Russian airstrike killed and wounded dozens of civilians. The airstrike targeted a gathering between the city of Zamalka and the town of Haza. The civilians were trying to reach the town of Hammouriya to go to government-held areas. A local source told SMART that dozens of bodies of killed and wounded civilians are still laying on the streets. No one is able to recover them.

The Syrian Civil Defense warned of a humanitarian disaster in besieged Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, which is under intense air bombings by Syrian and Russian forces. A source told SMART that the government forces have banned civilians evacuated from Eastern Ghouta, from leaving Damascus for any other city.

On Friday night and Saturday, the Jaysh al-Islam announced targeting a loyalist helicopter with a 9K33 Osa anti-aircraft system missile. The missile was captured from loyalist forces a few years ago and the group used it once they managed to reactivate it again. 

Suspected loyalist warplanes bombed the city of Maarrat al-Nu'man in the southern countryside of Idlib, killing and wounding nine civilians, including a woman and child. Similar bombings also hit the town of al-Tamaniah, without injuries, according to activists.

Omar Hozifah, the Head of the Shari'a Council of the al-Sham Legion, reported that the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the Syrian Liberation Front approved a cease-fire agreement in order to discuss their pending files. He added that the agreement included releasing both parties' detainees, ceasing mutual stalking, opening the roads to reach frontlines with loyalist forces, and putting an end to propaganda.

On Friday night, suspected Russian bombing on the town of Kafr Nabudah northwest of Hama injured four civilians. The bombing was followed by loyalist forces shelling from surrounding bases.

On Saturday, Free Syrian Army factions participating in the Olive Branch Operation, gained control of the central prison west of the city of Afrin (43 kilometers north of Aleppo), as well as a number of villages in the region, all proceeding clashes with factions of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party.
