In a heart-wrenching incident, the Syrian regime forces have once again committed a gruesome act, resulting in the tragic loss of four siblings from a single family. The horrifying event unfolded in the village of Qarqour, located in the western region of Hama, on the afternoon of Sunday, October 22nd.
According to our correspondent stationed in Hama, regime forces based in the Jurin camp launched a relentless artillery barrage on a residential house in the village of Qarqour, situated in the Al-Ghab Plain area. This brutal assault led to the untimely deaths of four innocent children, including three girls and a boy.
A medical source in Al-Qarqour conveyed, “Three of the children succumbed to their injuries immediately following the artillery shelling at their home, while the fourth child tragically lost their life within the hospital due to the severity of their injuries.”
Our correspondent also revealed that the families of these children had been engaged in fishing and agriculture in the village of Qarqour. They had recently returned to their homeland after spending years living in makeshift tents.
Adding to the heartache of this situation, it was reported that one of the children’s fathers, who lost his son in the artillery attack, had been released from the clutches of regime forces’ detention centers approximately two years ago after enduring more than seven years of captivity. Tragically, today, the very same regime forces targeted his residence and claimed the life of one of his beloved sons.
The horrors continue to mount, as even during the late hours of the previous Saturday and into Sunday, another innocent civilian fell victim to Russian airstrikes that targeted the village of Sheikh Sindyan in the western countryside of Idlib. The strikes caused the collapse of the victim’s house, resulting in injuries that serve as a grim reminder of the ongoing suffering endured by the Syrian people.
