Idlib - SMART

The Free Directorate of Education of the Interim Government suspended the schools of the Eastern and Southern Idlib countryside due to the military campaign in the area by the loyalist forces and Russia.

The Head of the directorate's Media Office, Mustafa Haj Ali, told SMART that the directorate suspended the schools in the towns Maarat Al Numan, Abu Al Thuhur and Sinjar. The directorate also canceled all examinations and started the first semester holidays.   

The schools were supposed to start the examinations on Jan. 9, but the directorate canceled the examination and announced the start of the holidays due to the intensive bombing by Russian and loyalist warplanes, missiles and artillery shells, according to Haj Ali.  

Haj Ali clarified that the schools in Maarat Al Numan have more than 70,000 students, and the schools in Abu Al Thuhur and Sinjar have 100,000 students. He pointed out that warplanes recently targeted two schools in the villages of Khan Sheikhun and Tal Al Tufan, in addition to 14 other schools.

On Sept. 27, 2017, the Free Directorate of Education suspended schools for a week due to the military escalation in the area.

More than 160 schools in Idlib have been completely destroyed, and 134 schools were partly damaged by the Russian and loyalist bombings in 2016, where 370 students and teachers were killed.   

The loyalist forces, backed by Russian warplanes and helicopters, are bombing the Idlib Southern and Southeastern countryside, killing and injuring dozens of civilians. The campaign has destroyed all infrastructure in the area and displaced more than 80,000 people.
