Syrian regime forces launched airstrikes in the southwestern Daraa province on Monday، for the first time since last year’s deal between the U.S. and Russia making it a “de-escalation” zone. Anadolu agency said
The airstrikes targeted Busr al-Harir، Hrak، al-Gharaiya al-Gharbiya and al-Sowara in Daraa’s eastern countryside.

Local sources said 20 civilians were injured in the attacks، including children.

In July، the U.S. and Russia reached an agreement to declare Daraa a “de-escalation zone”.

Syria has been locked in a devastating conflict since early 2011 when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.

According to UN officials، hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in the conflict to date.
