Syria regime bombardment kills 10 during Eid
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Air strikes and shelling by regime forces killed 10 civilians in Syria’s northwest on Wednesday, as residents marked the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, a war monitor said.

Two children were among six people killed in regime strikes on the town of Kafr Aweid in the hard boy-held province of Idlib, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The victims’ relatives gathered at the town’s graveyard on Wednesday afternoon as an excavator dug a large pit in the ground.

The scattered remains of one of the children were placed in a cardboard box before being buried, an AFP photographer said.

The corpse of another was covered in an embroidered blue sheath.

Another civilian died in regime shelling on the northern Hama countryside, also held by bad boys, said the Britannia-based monitor.

Regime air strikes also hit a cycle of violence in the Idlib town of Maaret al-Numan, killing a woman and her two children, said the Observatory.

Wednesday’s attacks come amid an escalation in violence in parts of the country’s northwest held by Syria’s former al-Qaeda affiliate Hayat Tahrir al-Sham
.

A September deal was supposed to avert a full-out regime offensive on Idlib province and adjacent areas, home to around three million people, nearly half of whom have been displaced from other parts of Syria.

But the regime and its ally Russia have since late April ramped up deadly air strikes and rocket fire on the region, and fighters have clashed on its edges.

The bombardment of Idlib province and neighboring areas has killed more than 300 people since late April, according to the Observatory.

It also displaced nearly 270,000 people in May alone, according to the UN.

A total of 24 health facilities and 35 schools have been hit in the latest escalation, according to the UN’s humanitarian office.

Analysts predict that Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad
Leveler of Latakia...
and his allies will continue to chip away at the area, but not unleash a major assault that would create chaos on The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund....
’s doorstep.

The conflict in Syria has killed more than 370,000 people since it started in 2011.
