Aerial shots show large roadblock on key M4 highway in Syria's Idlib


Aerial images show a large roadblock across the key M4 highway in Idlb province near the village of Al-Nayrab in Syria. The giant trench dug across the road connecting the Idlib crossroads town of Saraqib with coastal Latakia appeared overnight, less than a day after Russia and Turkey launched a first but brief joint military patrol along the road following a ceasefire agreement earlier this month. Several hundred pro-rebel demonstrators took to the highway near Al-Nayrab on Sunday to protest the patrol, setting tyres ablaze and piling tree branches across the thoroughfare.

  • AERIAL SHOTS of ravaged remains of house destroyed by Russian air strike in Syria's Idlib

    Images show people standing amidst the rubble of a house that was destroyed by a Russian air strike that killed seven people, four of them children, in the Jisr al-Shughur countryside of northern Syria. Russia, which did not comment immediately on the raid, is a main backer of President Bashar al-Assad's regime. With Russian and Iranian support, Damascus clawed back much of the ground lost in the early stages of Syria's conflict, which erupted in 2011 when the government brutally repressed pro-democracy protests. The last pocket of armed opposition to the regime includes large swathes of Idlib province and parts of the neighbouring Aleppo, Hama and Latakia provinces. IMAGES
