45 dead, including 10 civilians in northwest Syria

 At least 45 people, including 10 civilians and 26 fighters loyal to the territory, have been killed in fierce fighting and targets targeting several areas in northernwestern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

On the other hand, clashes broke out between the forces of the rule and fighters loyal to them on the one hand, and the fighting factions, including the Sham Liberation Organization (formerly Nasra), on the other hand, in the northern Hama countryside adjacent to the province of Idlib, coincided with the Observatory with the implementation of Russian and Syrian air raids.

The Observatory counted the deaths of at least 26 rule forces and fighters loyal to them during the fighting, eight of them by landmine explosion, while nine fighters killed during the fighting and shelling.

Syrian air strikes on several areas in the southern countryside of Idlib, which leads to the clashes, killed at least 10 civilians, including three children and two women, according to the observatory.

Five civilians were killed in the town of Barah, three in the town of Ma'arat al-Nu'man and two others in al-Faira village, according to the observatory.

The battles are concentrated in the northern Hama countryside, where regime forces are trying to reclaim two areas that had driven the factions out of them before returning on June 6 following clashes that killed 100 fighters from both sides within 24 hours.

Since the end of April, Syrian and Russian warplanes targeting southern Idlib and Hama al-Shamali have resulted in almost daily deaths among civilians. Villages and towns have become almost empty of residents after fleeing the heavy shelling.

The Idlib region, run by the Sham Liberation Organization and with less influential Islamist factions, is under a Russian-Turkish agreement since September, which provides for the establishment of a demilitarized zone separating the forces of the regime and the factions, whose implementation has not been completed.
