Aleppo - SMART

On Friday night, Russian warplanes raided the town of Taqad, about 25 kilometers west of the city of Aleppo, Northern Syria, and the perimeter of the city of Azaz, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo.

Captain Naju Mustafa, the National Liberation Front spokesman, reported to SMART on Saturday that Russian warplanes shelled Azaz and Taqad with missiles, without causing casualties.  

On June 16, 2020, Sobhi al-Ibrahim, head of the Civil Defense in the village of Shannan, reported to SMART that Russian warplanes shelled the villages of al-Bara and al-Mozara in Zawiya Mountain, southern Idlib, with missiles that exploded before reaching land, causing severe damages in property.

On June 8, 2020, Russian aerial bombings on towns and villages of Zawiya Mountain killed two civilians and injured three others.

On Apr. 21, 2020, the Response Coordination Group-Syria accused the Syrian government of deliberately violating the ceasefire agreement in the Idlib governorate, in order to prevent displaced people from returning home.

On Mar. 5, 2020, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin announced reaching a ceasefire agreement in Idlib that entered into force on Mar. 6, 2020 at 00:01.
