The Russian Federation began 2022 with air strikes on civilian infrastructure in Syria. The probable goal of such actions is to deepen a humanitarian crisis and to continue to force people to flee the war zone to other countries creating new waves of migration. According to Turkish media, on January 2, at 12:45 pm, a Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber that belongs to the Russian Air Force bombed several towns and a main water pumping station supplying water to the city of Idlib in Syria. As a result of the bombing, the water pumping station became completely inoperable.
