Idlib - SMART

On Friday, suspected Russian airstrikes injured seven civilians in a residential area near the city of Khan Sheikhoun, 55 kilometers south of Idlib, Northern Syria.

The Civil Defense said that the Russian warplanes bombed the al-Minttar farmland in Western Khan Sheikhoun, injuring seven civilians.

The Civil Defense added that two women and a child were among the injured, amidst the possibility of finding other injured people trapped beneath the rubble.

The Syrian government forces continue to bomb the Idlib governorate, killing and injuring civilians. Intermittent Russian airstrikes hit Idlib despite the Russian-Turkish agreement that states stop bombing the area.
