Violent bombardment on "demilitarized" due to Russian-Turkish differences

The demilitarized zones were subjected to heavy bombardment which was the heaviest on the eastern and southern countryside of Idlib in conjunction with the emergence of differences between Russia and Turkey over Idlib and the classification of the Kurds in Syria.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that areas in the town of Saraqab in the eastern countryside of Idlib were shelled by the regime. The regime forces targeted areas in the outskirts of Ma'arat al-Nu'man, while the regime targeted Tawil al-Halib area in the south-eastern countryside of Idlib.

Areas in Khalesah town in the southern countryside of Aleppo were exposed to bombardment by the regime forces, preceded by the bombing of areas in the city of Khan Sheikhun, causing material damage and injuring several persons, bringing the number of the killed to at least 304 during the implementation of the so-called demilitarized zones.

"An army unit foiled an attempt of infiltration terrorist gangs belonging to Jabhet al-Nusra from the town of Morak towards Tel Bazam in the northern countryside of Hama, and the members were killed and wounded," SANA agency said.

The escalation that followed the Russian-Turkish talks in the so-called demilitarized zones continues as the differences between the two sides continue about a solution in Idlib and the Turkish role throughout Syria.

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that there would be no Russian-Turkish military operation in Syria, and that there was a dispute with Turkey over the classification of Kurds in Syria.
