Conflicts A- A A+

Syrian pro-government media say their troops have captured two villages and a nearby hill in the last rebel stronghold in the country's northwest — Idlib province.

The development is part of the latest push by government forces against the enclave that was launched last month. So far, dozens have been killed and more than 150,000 have been displaced.

The pro-government Syrian Central Military Media said government forces captured the villages of Hawash and Jabrieh and Hawash hill on the southern edges of Idlib on Monday.
