On Tuesday, Assad regime and Russian forces continued to carry out massacres of Syrian civilians in the country’s northwest, with air raids that struck the public market in the city of Jisr al-Shaghour in western Idleb, killing at least five civilians.
The Anadolu agency said that: “a raid carried out by Syrian regime aircraft killed five civilians and wounded 20” a little while before Iftar in the city of Jisr al-Shaghour in western Idleb.
Syrian Civil Defense sources said that five civilians were killed and 20 others were wounded by a raid carried out by Assad’s aircraft in the town of Hesh in southern Idleb, which was also heavily struck on Tuesday by barrel bombs.
Assad’s forces also continued attempts to advance in areas outside their control in the northern Hama countryside, with pro-regime media, including Sham FM, saying that regime forces entered the village of al-Hamra in Sahel al-Ghab close to the town of al-Huwayz in the northwestern Hama countryside.
On Monday, a number of rebel groups in the Free Syrian Army and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham carried out an attack that struck positions where regime forces were located in northern Hama. The attacking forces said that they had inflicted material and human losses on Assad’s forces especially in the town of Tel Malh, which the rebel groups entered before withdrawing again hours later.
