The Russian Armed Forces committed a massacre by bombing an entire family whose members were preparing to flee with their car the escalating violence in the western countryside of Aleppo to northern Syria.

The escalation continues in the western countryside of Aleppo; the Syrian regime forces have conducted a military battle to make a ground advance in the area, in parallel with another assault in Idlib’s countryside.

On Sunday, 2 February, the “Civil Defense” in Aleppo city confirmed that four people, including a woman, were killed. The Civil Defense also documented the injury of 14 people, including four children, as a result of intense bombardment by the Syrian regime forces and its ally Russia, on the western, northern and southern areas of Aleppo.

The Syrian regime warplanes committed a civilian massacre in the town of Sarmin in the Idlib countryside on Sunday, killing an entire family of eight members, including four children and three women.

Media activists in the city of Binnish in the southern countryside of Idlib documented the death of a child and the injury of two other people, as a result of the bombing carried out by the Syrian regime air forces, near the “al-Zahraa Mosque” in the city.

Mark Cutts, Deputy Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Syrian Crisis, said on 2 February that the humanitarian situation in Idlib is acute, pointing out that civilians are trapped in a war zone, the vast majority of whom are women, children, and old people.
