Footage provided by the Syria Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, shows rescuers scrambling to pull young children from the rubble of a collapsed building after an alleged barrel bomb hit the structure in Idlib, Wednesday, December 4.

The previous day, artillery fire from the Turkish-controlled area in the town of Tal Rifaat in northwest Syria’s Aleppo governorate, killed at least ten civilians and injured 21 others, according to local sources.

Ibrahim Haftaro, the head of Avrin Hospital in the region, told VOA that eight children, between 7-15 years of age, were among the Kurdish civilians killed in the Monday attack.“The majority of those killed, eight of them, are children; one is an elderly man over 60 years of age, and the other is a woman,” Haftaro said, adding that among the injured, two were in a critical condition.
