Syria regime forces shell Aleppo, Idlib province hours after deadly bombing
Syrian regime forces bombed the country's northwest on Sunday morning, just hours after two civilians were killed and two others injured following a similar attack targeting a camp in the region.
Regime forces used artillery shells to bomb the vicinity of the villages of Kafr Taal in Aleppo province and Al-Fatira in Idlib province, local sources told The New Arab's Arabic sister service Al-Araby Al-Jadeed.
A similar attack targeted a camp for the displaced in Idlib, killing two civilians including a man in his 90s on Saturday.
The White Helmets said the incident also led to the injury of two others; a child, whose condition was described as "critical", and a man.
A fire broke out in the camp, the civil defence group that operates in rebel-held areas said, adding that its teams treated the injured, recovered the two dead bodies and extinguished the blaze.
The White Helmets said regime rocket strikes hit the camp on the outskirts of Sarmin, a town in Idlib.
The area is close to the front line between regime forces and the jihadist Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham group, which controls swathes of Idlib province, as well as parts of neighbouring Aleppo, Hama and Latakia provinces.
