LAST BASTION - Syrian Idlib Province

"Idlib’s ‘relentless’ onslaught vs. northeastern Syria’s ‘fragile stability’" PBS NewsHour 6/14/2019


SUMMARY:  In northwest Syria, Idlib province -- the final stronghold of opponents of the Assad regime -- is under relentless attack, and a source of tension between Syria and Turkey.  Land liberated by the U.S. and its Kurdish allies in northeast Syria [Ar Raqqah] faces a very different situation.  Nick Schifrin talks to Gayle Tzemach Lemmon of the Council on Foreign Relations, and Hassan Hassan of the Center for Global Policy.
