Idlib - SMART

On Sunday, the local council of the city of Kafr Zeita, 38 kilometers north of Hama, Central Syria, announced a state of emergency due to the Russian and Syrian government forces' airstrikes and artillery shelling.

In a statement obtained by SMART, the local council warned that a humanitarian crisis is likely to unfold in the city, expressing concerns about the potential use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government forces. The local council confirmed that there are no military bases in the city.

In the statement, the Kafr Zeita local council demanded Turkey to take responsibility as a guarantor state of the de-escalation agreement in the region, wondering if the purpose of the "Tehran Summit," which was held on Friday, was "agreeing to kill the Syrian people in silence."

The local council appealed to all the humanitarian organizations and the United Nations Security Council to help Turkey pressure the Syrian government to stop the latter's "unjustified" attack.

Earlier, the local council of the town of al-Hbeit announced a state of emergency due to the intensified Russian and Syrian government forces' bombing.

The Syrian government forces and Russia targeted the Northern Hama countryside with intensified aerial and artillery shelling, coinciding with a similar shelling on the Southern Idlib countryside, killing a child and injuring several civilians.

The Syrian government forces and Russia continue to escalate their military operations in the Idlib and Hama governorates, and both parties target the area with airstrikes and heavy artillery and missile shelling, killing and injuring dozens of civilians, destroying a Civil Defense center, and displacing a large number of people.
