Idlib province hit by intensive bombing

International Editor

Idlib province in north-west Syria has faced an intensive bombing campaign conducted by President Bashar al-Assad and his Russian allies. Yesterday an airstrike on a market reportedly killed ten people, including two children. Following a military push by President Assad, backed by Russian airstrikes, he has regained control of half the country. The people of Syria now face a fight on two fronts – ┬áthe regime on one side and radical Islamist forces on the other.

A warning: this report contains some distressing images.
