The regime forces and Russia continue to commit massacres against civilians by targeting their homes in the populated cities and towns in northwestern Syria-Idlib, which resulted in the death of 8 civilians, including 6 children, and the injury of 9 others, some of them are serious injuries.
Today, Violet mourns with great sadness the loss of one of its volunteers "Abdul Hamid Al-Asi", his wife and their three children, and the injury of their only surviving daughter as a result of targeting their home in Iblin village in Jabal al-zawiya. We wish God's mercy for them, and patience for their relatives and loved ones. It is worth noting that the volunteer 'Abdul Hamid' was martyred while wearing the Violet organization shirt on his way to work.
Sobhi worked with the Community Treatment Center to address the Covid-19 pandemic in Ariha-Idlib, and was an administrative officer at the 'Iblin' Primary Health Care Center, he was also a fourth-year student at the Faculty of Sharia and Law at Idlib University. His last participation was yesterday Friday, in the human chain on Bab Al-Hawa Road as part of the solidarity campaign to demand saving the lives of civilians in northwest Syria.
This wasn't the first massacre against the Al-Assi family, as five members were martyred due to the regime's targeting of a family gathering in the village of Iblin on the 10th of June 2021. While the regime forces continue to commit massacres in northwest Syria, 43 civilians have been killed since the beginning of last June, including 9 children, 6 women, a newborn, and leaving at least 90 people injured.
We call on the international community and human rights bodies to put pressure on the Syrian regime and Russia to stop the bombing and the direct targeting of civilians in northwest Syria, which is causing a new wave of displacement to the camps that lack the minimum necessities of life. All that is happening in light of the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, water shortage crises, and the recent Russian threat to disrupt the cross-border aid decision, which will constitute a major humanitarian crisis against more than 4 million civilians.
