Syria war: More than 235,000 people flee rebel-held Idlib region

More than 235,000 people have fled from their homes in Syria's rebel-held Idlib province, the UN says, as government forces step up their offensive on the area.

The exodus happened between 12 and 25 December as fighting intensified.

Idlib in north-western Syria is the last major region held by rebels opposed to President Bashar al-Assad.

The Russian-backed Syrian government has been bombarding Idlib since late November.

An increase in air strikes and ground fighting since mid-December has accelerated civilian displacement from the area, UN humanitarian agency Ocha said in a report.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Syria: People flee as Assad closes in on Maraat al-Numan

Footage filmed for Sky News shows the devastation and desperation as the town's people flee the Russian-backed Syrian forces.

Deborah Hayes
Foreign affairs editor @haynesdeborah

The streets of one of the first towns to rise up against the Syrian regime lie empty and broken after most of its residents fled an expected advance by Russia-backed Syrian forces.

The retaking of Maraat al-Numan in Idlib province would be a deeply symbolic victory for the regime of President Bashar al-Assad almost nine years after it fell under rebel control.

Footage filmed for Sky News from the town shows the scars of war, with shattered buildings, battered shop fronts and rubble-strewn roads.
