    The Idlib province, located on the Turkish border, is the last major rebel-held area in Syria – almost two-thirds of it is ruled by al-Qaeda-affiliated group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Tens of thousands have fled to other parts of Syria since September, said Panos Moumtzis, Regional UN Coordinator for Syria in Geneva.
