On January 15 at 2:06 pm Damascus time, a massive airstrike hit the crowded Al-Hal Market in Idlib City, Syria killing at least 19 and injuring at least 65 civilians, including many women and children. This new military campaign on Idlib City, which started last week, poses the greatest threat to millions of civilians since the start of the conflict.
Last year, the UN counted 82 attacks on medical centers, leaving the medical infrastructure decimated in Idlib and unable to handle another escalation of violence. The winter weather in Idlib is currently near freezing temperatures and rainy, exposing hundreds of thousands of internally displaced people to the harsh conditions without adequate shelter.
