The shelling also wounded more than eight civilians, he said.
It is noteworthy that 75 civilians, including 12 children were killed last month, in Idlib, as a result of the regime forces and foreign terrorist militias backed by Iran, and Russia, to villages and cities populated by civilians, according to a report of the Civil Defense.
The death toll in the escalation of the escalation in the past 10 days has also exceeded the residential areas of Russia and the Assad regime.
In May 2017, Turkey, Russia and Iran announced that they had reached a “de-escalation zone” agreement in Idlib as part of the Astana meetings on Syria.
However, the regime forces and their supporters continue to launch attacks in the region despite an understanding between Turkey and Russia on September 17, 2018, in the Russian city of Sochi, to install a “de-escalation”.
More than 1,400 civilians have been killed by regime and Russian attacks on the de-escalation zone since September 17, 2018.
The attacks also displaced more than a million civilians to relatively peaceful areas, or close to the Turkish border.
