Turkey - SMART

On Monday, aerial bombardment from government helicopters and warplanes killed three civilians and injured others in Eastern Idlib, Northern Syria. The air strikes targeted most of the villages and towns in the province simultaneously.

Activists told SMART that explosive barrels killed two civilians and wounded three others in Tal Sheikh Mansour near the city of Saraqib, 16 km east of Idlib.

The activists added that suspected regime warplanes launched raids on the village of Abu Habba, 45 km east of Idlib, killing one civilian and wounding others. The wounded were transferred to nearby medical clinics.

The activists also added that an intense bombing campaign has been targeting most of the villages and towns of the eastern and southern suburbs of Idlib, including the towns of Saraqib, Jerjenaz, al-Tamanah and Abu al-Thuhour, in addition to the villages of Tal Mardikh, al-Tah, Kafr Amem and al-Ghadfa. The activists accuse the loyalist forces of targeting the locations of those displaced by the violence of the military campaign in the region.

The activists also said that military observers were "very helpful" in alerting people to the location targeted by the loyalist forces' attacks. This facilitated the evacuation of some of the areas before they were hit.

However, on Sunday night and Monday morning a suspected Russian air strike killed 16 civilians and injured others in the villages of Kansafra and al-Fa'alul south of Idlib.

Air strikes ordered by Bashar al-Assad's government and Russian forces have killed and wounded tens of thousands of Syrians since the beginning of the civil war. Dozens of villages and towns are now under the control of the government, and more than 80,000 Syrians have been displaced internally.
