Syrian regime forces shelled farmland in W. Hama governorate on May 27

Syrian regime artillery forces fired shells at agricultural land in Sahl al Ghab area in the western suburbs of Hama governorate on May 27, 2021, causing fires in some of the land and damaging landowners’ properties. SNHR can confirm that the land targeted is owned by civilians and free of any military presence.
We note that despite the area being included within the areas of the ceasefire agreement reached following consultations between the Turkish and Russian presidents, which came into effect on March 6, 2020, Syrian regime forces and their allies haven’t stopped their attacks in these areas which have resulted in further displacement for civilians amid the spread of COVID-19.
