Idlib - SMART

On Wednesday, the Education Directorate of the Interim Syrian Government suspended schools in the city of Maarrat al-Nu'man near Idlib, Northern Syria, as a result of the Syrian government forces’ shelling.

The manager of the directorate’s media department, Mustafa Haj Ali, reported that they suspended the educational activities in the city’s schools for only one day, fearing the Syrian government forces’ shelling on the city.

Haj Ali added that 21 schools, which include 13053 students, were suspended.

A day ago, the Syrian government forces committed a massacre using artillery and rocket shelling on residential neighborhoods and popular markets in Maarrat al-Nu'man, killing 11 civilians and injuring 25 others.

The Syrian government forces and Russia continue to shell Idlib, killing and injuring civilians despite the Russian-Turkish agreement in the area.
