Syrian regime forces continue to target de-escalation areas in the countryside of Aleppo, leaving dozens of casualties over the recent period.
On Thursday, September 22, 2022, the regime forces shelled a number of civilian homes in Kafr Amma town in the western countryside of Aleppo.
Thursday’s bombing left one young man killed and a child of the same family injured.
The victim was identified as Mohammed Hamdo Arab, while the injured child was identified as Qusai Hamdo.
In May 2017, Turkey, Russia and Iran announced an agreement to establish a “de-escalation zone” in Idlib and parts of the countryside of Aleppo, Hama and Latakia, as part of the Astana meetings on Syria. However, the Syrian regime forces and their supporters continued to attack the area from time to time, despite the ceasefire agreement signed on March 5, 2020.
A civil war began in Syria on March 18, 2011, after the Syrian regime launched a fierce crackdown on protests condemning human rights violations in the country.
Meanwhile, millions of displaced people are currently living in camps in north and northwest Syria, as they fled the regime’s bombing of their villages, towns and cities.
