Syria war: Rebels make gains against Syrian army

Turkey-Russian ties extend beyond Syria but Idlib is where they are bargaining and strengthening their negotiating hand.

In northwestern Syria, rebels have launched a counterattack against pro-government forces.

Fighting has been intensifying in Idlib and Hama provinces since last month despite a Turkish and Russian-brokered ceasefire.

At least 200 civilians have been killed.
