(Worthy News)-- Rebels led by the Al-Nusra Front have launched a blistering three-pronged offensive aimed at consolidating their Idlib victory and rolling back the regime in northwest Syria, Business Insider reported.
Insurgents mustered over 10,000 troops to attack a corridor of regime-held territory stretching south of Idlib from Ariha westward to Jisr al-Shughur and then down to the Al-Ghab plain that straddles the Latakia and Hama provinces.
Islamist battalions and other rebel units in the Army of Conquest coalition that seized Idlib in a dramatic late March offensive announced the start of the campaign Wednesday. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.businessinsider.com/syrias-civil-war-is-reaching-a-tipping-point-2015-4" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
