At least 38 civilians, including 13 women and 13 children, died due to Syrian regime airstrikes in the period from Feb. 12 to 20, local sources said on Thursday.
Syrian regime airstrikes in Hama's northern countryside and in de-escalation zones located in northern Idlib left 38 civilians dead in the period from Feb. 12 to 20, according to local civil-defense sources.
Casualties included at least 13 women and 13 children, Raed Saleh, director of the White Helmets civil-defense agency, told Anadolu Agency.
According to Saleh, a bakery and at least three schools in the town of Khan Sheikhoun were destroyed by the strikes.
In a Thursday statement, the White Helmets called on Turkey, Russia and Iran -- the three guarantor states in the Asana peace process -- to pressure Damascus to halt its attacks.
Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in early 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected severity./aa
