Alleged Russian Airstrike Targets Idlib's Water Treatment Facility

Published Jan. 2, 2022

Footage released by members of the Free Syrian Army on January 2, 2022 shows the destruction of the Idlib water treatment facility. They are alleging that it was a Russian airstrike that did the damage.


We're always skeptical when we see footage claiming that the Russians did this, or that the Russians did that, because it wasn't too long ago that these same groups were alleging that they killed a billion Americans in places like Fallujah or Nasiriyah. That said, this footage was released today and it alleges that Russian warplanes destroyed the water treatment facility inside of Idlib, which could potentially leave hundreds of thousands of Syrian civilians inside of the city without water.


It's not a war crime to destroy key infrastructure during a war as well. We did this in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq, and it's something that's perfectly allowed. That said, the Russian MOD has not many any statements at this time confirming that it was indeed their warplanes that made the airstrike, so we aren't going to post it as a verified fact. We'll simply tell you what members of the Free Syrian Army are saying. If the Russian Ministry of Defense does make a statement, we'll make a update down in the comments section confirming their direct involvement in the airstrike.
