At least eight civilians were killed Wednesday in an attack on a refugee camp in northwestern Syria, a local civil defense agency said.

The rocket attack was carried out by Iran-backed groups which support the Syrian regime, the White Helmets said, adding that the casualties are mostly children.

The rockets were fired on the Idlib de-escalation zone from Mount Azzan in the southern countryside of Aleppo province, a Syrian opposition’s observatory said.

Earlier on Wednesday, Russian airstrikes killed six civilians in Idlib, taking the death toll during the day to 14.
