Russian Bombing in Syria, Citizen journalist among 17 civilians

Air strikes believed to have been carried out by Russian warplanes killed scores of people in the centre of the rebel-held city of Idlib in north-west Syria.

Air raids by Syrian army and Russian ally kill at least 17, including three children and a journalist. Anas al Dyab, a photographer and videographer in his early 20’s was a member of the White Helmets who also contributed to Turkey’s Anadolu News Agency.

Air attacks killed six people, including a child, in the village of Urum al-Jawz in western  province Idlib while four others, including two children, were killed in raids on Kfarouma in the south of the province.

A Russian air strike killed a civil defence volunteer with the White Helmets and citizen journalist identified as Anas al-Dyab in the town of Khan Sheikhoun.

President Bashar al Assad’s government and Russia have stepped up their deadly bombardment of Idlib since late April, despite a September buffer zone deal to protect the region of some three million people from a massive military assault.
