Footage shows bombing of the city of Maarat al-Numan by the Assad regime

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The town of Maarat al-Numan in Idlib province in northwestern Syria, which is under intense attack by the regime of Bashar al-Assad and his supporters, was filmed by drone, reports Anadolu Agency (AA).

Attacks by the Assad regime, Russia and Iranian-backed foreign terrorist groups on civilian settlements south of Idlib continue.

The city of Maarat al-Numan south of Idlib is also targeted.

The Turkish-language Turkish public broadcaster TRT channel filmed the bombing of the city. The footage shows the bombs thrown on civilians’ homes.

Tens of thousands of civilians were forced out of their homes by intense attacks.

Otherwise, during the May 2017 meeting of Turkey, Russia and Iran in Astana, Kazakhstan, Idlib was declared a de-escalation zone, where acts of aggression would be banned.

Turkey and Russia reached an additional agreement in September last year in Sochi in the wake of the Syrian regime’s ceasefire violation.

However, regime forces with the help of supporters have continued their attacks despite the deal. Since that date, over 1,600 civilians have lost their lives as a result of the attacks.
