21 Killed in Airstrikes in Syrian Rebel-Held Province of Idlib

A New Ceasefire Agreement Between Russia and Turkey Came into Effect on Sunday


At least twenty-one people were killed in an airstrike in Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province on Wednesday.

The attack was carried out by Syrian government forces and with the support of Russian troops.

The Syrian Civil Defence said barrel bombs struck a vegetable market in the town of Ariha, killing 19 people, including a Civil Defence volunteer.

Another person was killed in the village of Has while a child succumbed to injuries she sustained in the attack.

The attacks happened even after a ceasefire agreement between Russia and Turkey, who support opposing sides in Syria’s conflict, came into effect on Sunday.
