Almost 18 civilians have been reported dead in the recent airstrike hitting the market and the industrial zone in the Syrian Rebel-held city of Idlib of this Wednesday. The Russian government and the Syrian government have kept silent on this issue. No comments have been made from either side.
“We live here without knowing if there is really a truce or if it’s just in the media. On the ground, here is no truce. People are afraid, the markets are empty,” Sari Bitar, a 32-year-old engineer living in Idlib city told Agence France-Presse on Thursday.
“The only problem is that there is nowhere to go,” Bitar said. “Syria is now limited to this geographical area, which is getting smaller day by day.”
