On Friday, in a Russian airstrike in Syria’s Idlib province, one child was killed while two other civilians have been injured.

The White Helmets, a search and rescue group operating in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province, shared the news that a Russian warplane taking off from the Khmeimim Base in Latakia province carried out an airstrike in the village of Kansafra close to midday on Friday.

A child was killed following the airstrikes by Russian warplanes. The group also stated that two civilians were injured.

Firas Khalifa, the media officer of the White Helmets, or Syrian Civil Defense, said the attack took place with many small cattle perishing in the attack, due to the area hit being an animal shelter.

In a separate incident, Assad regime forces shelled the villages of Fattire, Binin, and Shinan in the Jabal Zawiya region. No casualties have been reported thus far.

Following repeated calls from the United States and United Nations towards all parties “to respect the ceasefire, protect the civilian population, and work to find a political solution to the conflict,” a ceasefire agreement was reached in March 2020, which has been consistently violated by Assad regime forces and their supporters.
