Syrian government forces have captured several rural settlements in the northwestern province of Idlib, as they continue an offensive into the country’s last rebel stronghold, state media and a war monitor said on January 26.

At least six villages in the Idlib countryside have fallen to government forces over the past two days, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Backed by Russian air strikes, government troops on January 26 reached the outskirts of Maaret al-Numan, 33 kilometers south of the city of Idlib, on an important highway that connects Damascus to Aleppo.

Syrian state TV said government forces had captured the village of Ghadqa near Maaret al-Numan earlier in the day.

Opposition activists said government troops are now less than a kilometer away from Maaret al-Numan.

According to the activists and paramedics, Maaret al-Numan is now almost empty as many residents have fled amid intense bombardments in recent weeks.

Idlib Province is home to some 3 million civilians and the United Nations has warned of the growing risk of a humanitarian catastrophe there.

Turkey said on January 24 that around 400,000 people from Idlib Province were moving toward the Turkish border as a result of the surge in violence.

Personal note: Could you imagine your kid standing there looking at your home totally destroyed by invaders? Heart breaking and you wonder why the next generation hates these enemies and the hate grows into revenge and so it begins once again and again and again. Until these kids don't see this type of devastation (or their home & family) "they will never forget" - and want to fight those who did them harm! It's a never ending line of fighters from little kids who grow up with revenge in the hearts & souls for what happen to their families and friends. I pray my kids never see this or American's.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
