A Syrian civilian was killed on Sunday by regime shelling of the Idlib de-escalation zone in northern Syria, according to a report by Anadolu Agency citing local sources.
Regime forces fired shells at Maghara and al-Bara villages in Idlib, the sources with the Syrian Civil Defence (White Helmets) said.
Idlib falls within a de-escalation zone forged under an agreement between Turkey and Russia in March 2020.
The Syrian regime, however, has consistently violated the terms of the cease-fire, launching frequent attacks inside the de-escalation zone.
Syria has been mired in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
Over the past decade, around half a million people have been killed and more than 12 million had to flee their homes.
