At least 25 civilians were injured in the raids on rebel-held territory in Idlib province, according to Abdel Rahman, whose Britain-based monitor has extensive sources inside war-torn Syria.

Damascus has reclaimed much of the terrain lost in the early phases of Syria’s conflict, which erupted in 2011 when the government ruthlessly crushed pro-democracy protesters.
