Shelling by Syrian regime forces has killed nine civilians, including three children, in the Idlib region in the country’s northwest, a war monitor reports.

Since June, government forces have stepped up shelling of rebel groups dominating the Idlib region who in turn have responded by targeting regime positions in surrounding areas.

Regime shelling on the outskirts of the north Idlib town of Fuaa killed six civilians, including a child, says the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. In a separate attack on the Idlib village of Iblin, more than 35 kilometers (22 miles) south of Fuaa, regime shelling killed three other people, including two children, the monitor says.
