A military assault was launched in Idlib, Syria’s last main rebel stronghold. The latest airstrikes were reportedly carried out by Russia, Syria’s main military backer from outside the region.

Idlib province is home to militants but also to millions of displaced civilians.

The United Nations has warned of a humanitarian crisis if the government launches a full-scale offensive.
