Six Syrian civilians, including two children, were killed Saturday in shelling from the Bashar al-Assad regime and Iran-affiliated terrorist groups, in breach of a truce in northwestern Idlib de-escalation zone.

Regime forces stationed in the Al-Hamidiya base in southeast Idlib violated the cease-fire by shelling a village with surface-to-surface missiles.

According to the Syria Civil Defense, or White Helmets, an initial assessment of a village in the Jabal al-Zawiya province found that three women were also killed and several civilians injured in the attack.
