Many of Jisrin inhabitants are still under rubble following bombing two homes by the Russian warplanes, and the local civil defence teams are trying to rescue them.

The Syrian Human Rights Committee condemns the continuation of the Syrian regime, the Russian warplanes and the supporting militias by targeting civilians and killing the local population, considering this action amounts to crimes against humanity, and hold them responsible for them.
