Idlib residents targeted by snipers

As Syrian city endures government assault, Al Jazeera reports how snipers have been targeting residents at random.

    For months before the Syrian army assault on Idlib, snipers have stalked the city, firing seemingly at random on ordinary residents.

    While an Al Jazeera team was working in the northwestern city this past week, three civilians, all of them elderly men, were shot dead.

    Al Jazeera’s Anita McNaught has this exclusive report from inside Idlib.
