Syria: Rebels seize Idlib city from Assad forces

Syrian rebel groups on Saturday seized the city of Idlib, only the second provincial capital to be lost by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in more than four years of war.

The capture came as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed anger and shame at the world’s failure to stop the conflict.

More than 215,000 people have been killed since anti-government protests, which erupted in March 2011, were repressed by President Assad leading to a brutal civil war.

The coalition that seized Idlib is made up of Al-Nusra Front, the official Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda, and several other factions.
