Summary

Children and teachers among those killed overnight as Russian delegation set to visit Turkey to discuss Idlib situation.More than 20 civilians were killed in Syrian government attacks on targets, including schools, in a relentless advance on the northwestern province of Idlib, the final major territory in Syria still controlled by opposition fighters.According to UK-based war monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, government aerial bombing killed at least nine children and three teachers in Idlib city on Tuesday.Another four people, including a mother and her two children, died in government shelling of the town of Binnish, northeast of Idlib city, the monitor said.At least six children were among 10 civilians killed by a Russian air attack on a shelter for displaced families in Maarat Misrin, a town just north of Idlib city on the road to the Turkish border, said Yahya Jaber, a rescuer in the civil defence emergency response force.8 schools and kindergartens were deliberately targeted today by the regime’s warplanes and rockets loaded with cluster bombs.
