A child killed by pro-Assad bombing of Idlib Province, Syria, June 10, 2019

Russian and Assad regime bombing killed at least 27 more civilians in northwest Syria on Monday.

The attacks followed a relative lull of a few days in the strikes on civilian site across Idlib Province, adjacent to the Russian-regime offensive in neighboring northwest Hama Province since May 6.

Residents and White Helmets civil defense said Russian Su-24 jets, used by the regime air force, killed 13 people in the village of Jabala in southern Idlib. The victims included women and children.

Russian-made jets also attacked the town of Khan Sheikhoun and several villages, including Kfar Batikh, killing another 12 people.

Videos — too graphic to be shown on EA — showed rescuers retrieving mutilated bodies in Jabala.

The assault continued overnight.

At least 325 civilians — most of them women and children — have been slain and hundreds wounded since April 28. More have been displaced, bringing the total to more than 300,000 since last autumn despite a “demilitarized zone” declared by Russia and Turkey. ALmost 30 medical facilities have been attacked, and crops have been bombed to cut off food supply to the estimated 3 million people — about 20% of Syria’s remaining population — in Idlib and northern Hama.

Despite the assault to break civilian will and destroy infrastructure, the Russian-regime offensive has stalled in northwest Hama. The assault initially seized several towns, but was soon held up by the counter-attacks.

Last Thursday, rebels and the Islamist bloc Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham launched another counter-attack, seizing some of the territory lost in early May.
