Damascus, November 2 – Syrian forces bombed a demilitarized area near Idlib and killed at least eight people, including five civilians, the Syrian Human Rights Observatory, based in London, announced today. In addition, more than 30 people were injured in the village of Jirdzinas.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the worst attack on the Tampon area is the worst since Russia and Turkey agreed on the establishment on 17 September.
The province of Idlib is considered to be the largest stronghold of Syrian rebels.
Russia and Turkey have agreed to establish a demilitarized area to prevent a large number of Syrian troops in the area. The agreement provides, among other things, for the withdrawal of radical rebels from the area by 15 October. None of the jihadist rebel groups left the area until the end of the war.
