White Helmet rescuers in Jisr al-Shughur said that the Idlib provincial town was targeted by over a dozen air raids on April 12, causing a number of deaths and injuries in the area. The local White Helmet headquarters was among the targets.

The air raids, which included both conventional munitions as well as alleged incendiary munitions, continued into April 13.

While Storyful cannot independently confirm the use of incendiary munitions in Jisr al-Shughur or elsewhere in northern Syria in recent days, White Helmet volunteers in the town spent several hours on April 12 searching for and cordoning off unexploded munitions ordinances in numerous areas of the town.
