Al Jazeera meets Syrian opposition fighters

Engineers and doctors are among those who have taken up weapons in the northern city of Idlib.



    The northern Syrian province of Idlib had become a stronghold of the armed opposition, before the army launched an assault to retake control of the area.

    Among the fighters are army defectors, engineers, teachers, doctors, lawyers and university students. They say most of their weapons are stolen or bought from the regular Syrian army.

    Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught speaks to fighters inside the city of Idlib about their struggle.
