The Bashar Assad regime and its backers killed eight civilians and injured another five in renewed attacks on Syria’s northwestern Idlib province Thursday.
Firas Khalifa, head of media at the Idlib branch of the Syrian Civil Defense (White Helmets), told Anadolu Agency (AA) that regime forces in the early hours of the day conducted attacks on Idlib’s al-Fua and Ablin villages.
The truce was negotiated between Turkey and Russia, the Syrian regime’s main backer. At the time, it halted a crushing Russian-backed regime air and ground campaign aimed at retaking the region where nearly 4 million people, most of them displaced, live.
Almost a million people have fled the Assad regime’s offensive on the last opposition bastion since December 2019, with many seeking refuge in overcrowded tent camps near the Turkish border. Upon the Assad regime's attack, Turkey launched Operation Spring Shield. After, the surge of violence decreased following a Turkey-Russia brokered cease-fire in the region, yet attacks continue frequently.
The war in Syria has killed nearly 500,000 people since it started in 2011 with the brutal repression of peaceful demonstrations.
