An airstrike on a market in a rebel-held town in the country’s northwestern province of Idlib Monday killed at least 10 civilians and wounded others, Syrian opposition activists said. Assad psychotic mental condition cannot but kill civilians. Just like serial killers on a journey.
Russia fully backs Assad actions. Its own air force has bombed markets, schools, and hospitals with large concentration of civilians.
The airstrike comes amid an increase of violence in Idlib province, the country’s last opposition stronghold where fighting between troops and insurgents killed dozens of gunmen on both sides over the weekend.
Living in fear among them are 3 million innocent Syrians caught between the terrors of Assad or AQ
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Monday morning airstrike on the market in Maaret al-Numan killed 10 and wounded others.
The opposition’s Syrian Civil Defense, also known as White Helmets, said the Assad attack killed nine civilians, including two women. It also wounded 13, including two children. The group said the death toll is not final yet.
The Civil Defense said on its Facebook page that also posted photos of its paramedic removing bodies from the market:
The bombardment of the market that was packed with civilians led to a massacre and wide destruction.
A beheaded man laid in a pool of blood in the market.
KILLING MORE CIVILIANS
The Observatory and the Civil Defense reported another airstrike on the nearby town of Saraqeb saying it killed and wounded several people. Assad psychotic mental condition cannot but kill innocent civilians.
Syrian troops launched a four-month offensive earlier this year against Idlib. Al-Qaida-linked militants dominate the area. Living in fear among them are 3 million innocent Syrians caught between the terrors of Assad or AQ.
The Syrian government offensive forced hundreds of thousands of civilians to flee their homes. A fragile cease-fire halted the advance at the end of August; but in recent weeks both sides repeatedly violated.
