700,000 Syrians displaced from Idlib, amid intense air strikes

(Agencies) US Special Envoy on Syria, James Jeffrey, said today, Thursday, that Syrian and Russian planes carried out 200 air strikes in the Idlib area during the past three days.

Geoffrey added in a press statement that about 700 thousand displaced people in northwestern Syria are "moving towards the Turkish borders, which will spark an international crisis."

Warplanes bombed the town of Jericho in Idlib, northwestern Syria, killing at least 10 people, while thousands of civilians in the cities and villages of Idlib countryside continued to leave their homes towards the Syrian-Turkish border to escape the fighting.

Today, Thursday, Syrian opposition activists said that the attack, which is believed to have been carried out by Russian warplanes on Wednesday, removed a local hospital from service. The Russian Ministry of Defense denied that it had targeted the hospital.

Field sources said that the Syrian government forces, backed by Russian air cover and Iranian militias, continued attempts to advance towards the city of Saraqeb, north of Maarat al-Numan, which was taken over by Wednesday, approaching a distance of about 5 kilometers from the city.

Violent clashes continue between the opposition Syrian factions and the Syrian government forces on the two axes of journalists west of the city of Aleppo, and Al-Qarasi in its southern countryside, where the latter are launching successive attacks in order to achieve progress in the region. Local sources and activists told "Sky News Arabia" that thousands of civilians in the cities and villages of Idlib countryside They leave their homes towards the Syrian-Turkish border in the north, after the bombardment intensified during the last days and hours and the Syrian government forces were approaching control of the city of Saraqib.

The civil defense team emphasized that civilians are living in difficult conditions, especially with the low temperatures and the impossibility of finding a house or even a tent, given the large waves of displacement that have reached the area during the past two months and the border area is overcrowded with the displaced.
