Syria Alerte de sécurité

Multiple civilians injured and hundreds flee following several airstrikes in northwestern Syria on June 8; similar attacks likely over near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/6/2020, 12h00 until 11/6/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Damascus). COUNTRY/REGION Syria, Idlib (Idlib province), Hama Governorate

Event

Russian military jets reportedly bombed several villages in Syria's rebel-held northwest on Monday, June 8, injuring multiple civilians and causing hundreds to flee for fear of further airstrikes. The strikes, which were the first to occur since the Turkish-Russian ceasefire over three months ago, were reported in the Jabal al-Zawiya region in southern Idlib province and two towns in the Sahel al-Ghab Plain, west of Hama province. Civil defense groups claimed that the strikes were carried out by Russian jets that flew at high altitudes.

Similar incidents in Syria's northwest cannot be ruled out in the near term.

Context

To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals. Advice

Advice

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country.

Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
