Heavy Bombing Forces Opposition to Suspend School in Aleppo Countryside

The Syrian opposition's education directorate has suspended school in the western and southern Aleppo countryside until the end of the week due to the heavy bombardment campaign targeting the region.

The directorate said in a statement on Tuesday that classes would be stopped in the countryside of the province until the end of the week, out of concern for the safety of teachers and students. It said the move was taken in response to “the monstrous attack by the criminal regime and the Russian occupier’s warplanes on the city’s groups, and the direct targeting of schools and facilities.”

Russian and regime warplanes have increased their military strikes on Syrian opposition areas within the de-escalation zone agreements, carrying out horrific massacres, with President Bashar al-Assad’s forces killing and wounding hundreds of civilians. Moscow, along with Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the de-escalation zone agreement.

The bombardment on northern Syria has been continuing for 10 days, with the cities of Atarib and Al-Qasmiyah facing recent strikes.

Russian warplanes also carried out a number of strikes on the town of Al-Bashiriyah in the eastern countryside of Jisr al-Shughour, destroying the local medical center.
