Monitor: Government Shelling in North Syria Kills at Least 8

Friday, 02 November 2018 10:37 AM EDT

BEIRUT (AP) — A Syria war monitor and an opposition paramedic group say government shelling of a rebel-held area in the country's northwest killed at least eight people.

Friday's shelling is the latest violation of a truce reached between Russia and Turkey in September that avoided a major government offensive on the rebel-held province of Idlib.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said eight people were killed, including five civilians, in the shelling near the village of Jarjanaz in Idlib.

The Civil Defense, also known as White Helmets, said artillery shells left 10 people dead and others wounded.

The Sept. 17 agreement between Russia and Turkey led to the setting up of a demilitarized zone some 15 kilometers (9 miles) deep that has been violated on several occasions over the past weeks.
