  • Russian air strikes kill 10 civilians in northwest Syria

People gather amidst the rubble and damaged vehicles in Syrian Idlib province on Monday.

"And if the answer is the Russian and Syrian air forces, I call on both ambassadors here today to give us an assurance that the attacks will stop, and there will be no more deliberate targeting of civilians in this manner in facilities that every single member of the global community has a duty to protect".

Syrian forces and their Russian allies have stepped up air strikes and shelling in the jihadist-controlled Idlib region since late April, raising alarm over a possible looming full-on offensive by Damascus to seize the territory.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is trying to regain control over the last province in the rebel-held Idlib province.

The raids hit near a hospital in the town, knocking it out of service, the Britain-based monitor said.

A correspondent for the AFP news agency saw five homes on the edges of the town that were destroyed or damaged after the strikes.

Survivors picked through the debris to save the belongings they could, the reporter said, while a young man covered in dust from head to toe leant against a wall, shell-shocked after his father was killed.

Smoke rises above buildings during fighting between government forces and rebels in the southern countryside of the rebel-held Idlib province, Syria, May 11, 2019.

The demilitarized zone surrounds Idlib and also includes parts of the adjacent provinces of Aleppo and Hama.

Besides Idlib, the militants continue shelling the government's forces in Hama, Latakia and Aleppo provinces, the statement issued by the centre reads.

In a brief statement on Sunday, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Sides in Syria said Syrian forces had ceased firing as of midnight, Al Jazeera reported.

The Sochi agreement prevented the Russia-backed government forces from launching a major military operation on Idlib and protected the so-called "de-escalation zone" agreed on between Russia, Iran and Turkey in 2017.

The war in Syria, now in its ninth year, has killed more than 370,000 people and displaced millions since it started with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
