Regime and Russian strikes in Syria, Child casualties on the rise

More children are becoming victims of a Syrian government and Russian assault on Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province.

Regime and Russian air strikes on Saturday killed 15 civilians, more than half of them children, in northwestern Syria.

In a separate incident in southern Daraa province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (or SOHR) said a suicide bomber killed six regime soldiers.

In the Idlib town of Ariha, seven children were among 11 civilians killed in Syrian air strikes that targeted two residential buildings and also wounded 28 other people.

At least 800 civilian deaths, including 200 children, since the Russian-backed Syrian government offensive began in April, according to the War monitors.

The UN’s Human Rights chief has condemned what she calls “international indifference” to the rising death toll.
