Russian forces supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched air strikes in northwestern Syria, killing at least 10 people. It is reported by Radio Liberty with reference to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"At least 10 people, including six children, died on December 24 in northwestern Syria as a result of an air strike by the Russian military," the statement said.

An airstrike hit a school in the village of Jubas in Idlib province, where internal refugees stayed.

Syrian government forces with the support of Russian troops are advancing on Idlib. They intend to bring civilians from this province to safer areas near the Turkish border.

Earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that more than 80 000 migrants from the Syrian Idlib are sent to the Turkish border, and Ankara does not intend to put up with this.

In September 2018, Turkey and Russia agreed to turn Idlib into a de-escalation zone. Due to the constant violation of the ceasefire agreement, more than 1 300 civilians have been killed as a result of attacks by Assad and Russian forces.
