Rubble and other hazards were removed from roads and neighborhoods in the Maland in northwest Syria, the Syrian Civil Defense said on Saturday, February 18.

Aerial and ground footage released by the Syrian Civil Defense shows rubble being cleared in the village, about 30km west of Idlib city. The service said the remaining hazards “threaten the lives of civilians and children and impede the movement of traffic,” according to a machine translation.
