Syria regime widens control over Idlib, fuelling exodus: monitorMaaret al-Numan (Syria) (AFP) – Regime forces have seized dozens of towns and villages in northwest Syria from jihadists following days of violent clashes, fuelling an exodus of civilians, a war monitor said Sunday. The fresh advances in Idlib province bring regime loyalists closer to capturing one of the largest urban centres in Syria’s last major opposition bastion, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. “This push is an attempt to get closer to Maaret al-Numan,” Observatory head Rami Abdul Rahman told AFP.
