Aerial shots from Sunday, December 8, show people gathered amidst the ruins of buildings destroyed during reported Syrian and Russian air strikes the previous day in the towns of Al-Bara and Balyun in the south of Syria's Idlib province.

Airstrikes on areas in northwest Syria on Saturday killed at least 18 people, including women and children, and wounded others as a three-month truce crumbles, opposition activists said.

The airstrikes on Idlib province have intensified over the past few weeks as the government appears to be preparing for an offensive o‚Äčn rebel-held areas east of the province to secure the main highway that links the capital Damascus with the northern city of Aleppo, Syria's largest city and once a commercial center.
