(Syria News) The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported, on Saturday that the military operations carried out by the Syrian regime on the areas of Idlib, Hama and Aleppo, caused the displacement of more than 485 thousand persons.

In a report released by the observatory, it stated that the majority of the IDPs went to the northern and western countryside of Idlib, causing an overload on camps and shelters in the area. The IDPs are suffering from the lack of food and medical aid, the report added.

The Syrian regime, backed by Russian warplanes and Iranian militias, launched an extensive attack on the eastern countryside of Hama and the southern and eastern countryside of Idlib in the period between September 2017 and February 2018, against the opposition factions.

These operations resulted in the killing of over 204 civilians, including 40 children and 46 women, as well as carrying out 191 attacks on vital areas, 12 attacks using cluster shells and 6 attacks using burning weapons.

The Syrian network also accused the Russian-Iranian troops of causing the displacement of 420 thousand civilians from these areas. Moreover, military operations in the southern countryside of Aleppo, in November 2017, caused the displacement of more than 65 thousand persons, as well as killing 49 civilians, including 13 children and 12 women.
