This happens two days after at least 16 civilians have been killed by Syrian and Russian air strikes in the region and the Assad government has captured three villages on the southeastern border.
Russia-backed Syrian forces have been fighting for nearly five months to take control of Idlib by jihadist rebels led by Al Qaeda-affiliated Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.
The province is the last rebel-led area in Syria, but there are also about 3 million civilians living there – about half of whom fled in fighting in the rest of the country.
