Syria: are civilians being deliberately targeted by pro-Assad forces?

President Assad’s regime has always insisted it’s fighting a war against terrorists and jihadists, while denying that it’s deliberately aiming at civilians.

This programme has an investigation which appears to show that civilians are in fact being targeted. As part of our series of special reports from North West Syria – we examine an airstrike in the village of Ma’aret Hurmah, just a few miles from the front line. For civilians still trying to live in rebel-held areas in Idlib province, surviving targeted airstrikes is a constant endeavour. This is the story of just one attack and its devastating consequences. And we should warn you: this report contains some distressing images.
