Russian and Syrian jets pound Idlib province

Russian and Syrian warplanes pounded towns in Syria’s opposition-held Idlib province today,killing three civilians.

These airstrikes came a day after a summit of the presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia failed to agree on a ceasefire that would forestall a Russian-backed offensive.

According to the rescuers , at least a dozen air strikes hit a string of villages and towns in southern Idlib and the town of Latamneh in northern Hama, where rebels are still in control.

The United Nations,meanwhile fears that a full-scale offensive could cause a humanitarian catastrophe involving tens of thousands of civilians.
