The Syrian regime’s army has blamed rebels, who it says are jihadists, for attacks on regime-held areas in Idlib and Aleppo provinces and denies indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas in territory under rebel control.

Opposition officials say both Russia and the regime are taking advantage of the world’s preoccupation with the Gaza war to escalate pounding of a region where over three million inhabitants refuse to live under the authoritarian rule of President Bashar al-Assad.
