Scenes of defiance in Idlib prior to attack

Exclusive Al Jazeera footage shows northern city in open revolt just days before Syrian forces regained control.

    The opposition city of Idlib is back under Syrian military control after four days of heavy fighting. More than one hundred people are confirmed dead even more are missing.

    But a day before the army bombed their way back in, the mood in the city remained defiant.

    For a brief period of time, most of Idlib province was outside the control of Damascus, and it served as the symbolic centre of the uprising.

    Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught reports from Idlib city.
