Six civilians were killed – mostly from the same family – and some were injured in an alleged Russian airstrike on Orm Al Joz, local media said. All sources reported that Russian missiles and rockets were to blame for the raid.

As many as two female children and two women were reportedly killed in the raid.

According to LCCSY, eight civilians were killed in Idlib on January 13th, most of them in Orm Al Joz.
