14 Killed in Artillery Fire and Airstrikes in Idlib, Syria

8-Year-Old Conflict Between The Government and Opposition Continues Despite Ceasefire


At least fourteen people have been killed by artillery fire and airstrikes in the Syrian opposition-held northern province of Idlib.

According to a report by the activists, six family members, including three children, died after an artillery shell hit their house in the village of Badama. Four other civilians were killed in an airstrike in the town of Maasaran.

On December 7, an airstrike on the opposition-held area, including the village of Balyoun, left twenty people dead.

According to a recent United Nations report, Idlib has a population of about three million people.

The eight-year-old conflict continues despite the ceasefire between the government and the opposition that was negotiated by Russia.
