Russian airstrikes | Dozens killed and injured of Islamic factions in attack on camp, north-west of Idlib

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented heavy casualties as a result of Russian airstrikes on Jabal al-Dawila area in Harem, north-west of Idlib, which targeted a camp of Islamic factions.

21 fighters of those factions were killed as an initial death toll, while more than 40 others were injured in the Russian airstrikes, Syriahr.com reports.

The death toll is expected to rise as a large number of the injured are in serious condition, while many others remained missing under the rubble, amid reports of further fatalities.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this morning renewed airstrikes on the “de-escalation zone”. Russian jets carried out airstrikes on places in the area of Jabal al-Dawila in the area of Harem, north-west of Idlib, nearly 9 km away from the border with the Iskenderun region.

The targeted area hosts camps for displaced people and rebels’ headquarters, specifically Al-Sham Corps faction close to Turkey. No casualties have been reported so far, while Russian jets continue flying over the area.

It is worth nothing that the area had housed an air defense battalion. However, al-Sham Corps turned it into a training camp after taking control of the battalion and captured a large number of regime soldiers about eight years ago.

On October 21, SOHR activists documented the injury of six civilians, including two children, in today’s airstrikes by Russian fighter jets on Al-Rami village in Jabal Al-Zawiyah in the southern countryside of Idlib.

SOHR sources had reported renewed airstrikes by Russian jets on Idlib province this afternoon, targeting Al-Rami village in Jabal Al-Zawiyah in the southern countryside of Idlib, but no casualties were reported.

It is worth noting that the village of Al-Rami hosts large number of refugees and displaced people.

Almasdarnews.com repots that the Russian attack killed and wounded more than 100 Turkish-backed militants, while also wiping out the entire training camp near the Turkish border in the Idlib Governorate.
