The Syria Civil Defense (SCD) documented the death of 42 civilians in the Ma`arat al-Nu`man area, rural Idlib, who met their fate due to the aerial and artillery shelling initiated by the Syrian regime and its Russian alley against the area.

Ma`arat al-Nu`man, rural Idlib, is suffering an intensive aerial and missile shelling on the part of the Syrian regime and Russia, in sync to the former’s progress on the ground, reaching areas beyond the al-Tamanah town, which the regime’s forces took over this morning.
