Syrian bakeries forced to operate during dark

With dozens of bakeries bombed by government forces, employees work through night to provide crucial supplies.

    Away from the fighting, millions of Syrians are struggling to find the most basic foodstuffs, including bread.

    More than 30 bakeries have been bombed by government forces, leaving many people too scared to shop for the staple product.

    Some of the bakeries are now operating in the dark of night in an attempt to provide much-needed supplies.

    Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal reports on the efforts of one bakery in Idlib that is trying to help feed the local community.
