White Helmets Say Agricultural Crops Deliberately Destroyed in Idlib Offensive

An airstrike near Khan Shaykhun caused a fire that burned through 200 acres of agricultural crops, the Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, said.

This footage is said to show Syria Civil Defense emergency responders battling the blaze.

The group said they had extinguished 38 agricultural fires since the beginning of May. They added, “Civil Defense teams warn of a humanitarian disaster to come with this deliberate destruction of the richest areas in the agricultural lands.” Credit: Syria Civil Defense via Storyful
