IDLIB, Syria 

Three civilians were killed in attacks Friday by the Assad regime and Russia in northwestern Syria in an area which falls under a de-escalation zone, according to local sources. 

Syrian opposition aircraft monitors said a civilian was killed in a regime airstrike in the village of Deir Sharqi and two others in a Russian airstrike in Maarat Al-Numan, both in the Idlib province.

Following the airstrikes, civil defense teams launched search and rescue efforts. 

Over 1,300 civilians have been killed in the Idlib de-escalation zone despite a deal reached by Ankara and Moscow in September 2018.
