Massacre

At 6:00 PM, Syrian army helicopters launched a fierce attack on al Habeit town, near Khan Sheikhoun city, 77 kilometers from the center of Idlib governorate. Helicopters used massive bombs, according to local people and activists who we spoke with; we also obtained information on the attack from victims’ families and those injured in the attack. The bombing targeted residential buildings, killing 13 people, including 10 children, during the first minutes of the attack.

The family of Ali Izzo was completely wiped out because the bombs fell on their home.
