BEIRUT (AFP) — The Syrian government has abandoned Idlib to concentrate on regions deemed vital for its survival, a security source and monitor said Friday, allowing Al-Qaeda to seize the province’s last regime-held city.

Rebels now control the vast majority of Idlib province after Al-Nusra Front — Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate — and its allies overran Ariha and surrounding villages on Thursday.It was the latest blow to loyalist forces who have been battling myriad rebel groups, following the fall of the ancient city of Palmyra to the Islamic State (IS) group last week.
