Over 15 people have died and several were wounded in an attack by Syrian government forces on the rebel-held area in Idlib.

The north-western area of Syria, including Adlib, is the last important region of the country which is under the control of rebels even after more than eight years of war.

Ground-to-ground missiles hit the camps at Kah (a town located at the north of Adlib near Turkey’s border) that were fired from the countryside of Aleppo, camps were burned, according to the White Helmets, which are officially recognized as Syrian Civil Defense.

According to the international news agency Reuters, the British-based Syrian Observatory for human rights said that a maternity hospital was also targeted in Kah by Pro-government weaponry shelling. Also, the Syrian-American hospital staff has informed that the shelling had damaged the hospital and the staff was also wounded.

Russia, which supports Syrian President Bashar-ul-Asaad and Turkey, which has been a supporter of rebels for a longer time, have mutually co-sponsored a de-escalation deal for this region at the beginning of this year that has since weakened.

Millions of people reside in this region that had fled from other areas of Syria because Moscow joined the war side of Assad in 2015.
