Syrians decimate forests to survive winter

Desperate to make it through the bitter cold, many people forced to break the law to provide warmth.

    Gripped by freezing conditions, Syrians are in need of more humanitarian assistance than ever before.

    In the battle to stay warm, some people in Idlib province are taking matters into their own hands, even if it means breaking the law.
