Rebels press Idlib victories

A coalition of rebels have continued their advances against regime troops in Idlib province, seizing a military base south of the provincial capital days after the key town of Jisr al-Shughur fell into their hands.

“Army of Conquest fighters… on Monday morning seized control of the Qarmeed military base, one of the most important remaining regime bastions in the Idlib province,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
