A team of TRT World journalists visited several districts in the contested region and interviewed people affected by the brutal aerial assaults carried out by the regime and Russia.
The fate of Idlib ought to be the major concern of the free world, yet all it garners, at best, is a few words of concern and condemnation.
Turkish and Russian defence ministers discussed measures to reduce tension in Idlib as Syria's northwestern region comes under increasing fire by the regime and its ally Russia.
Turkish President Erdogan spoke to his Russian counterpart Putin over the phone to discuss recent Syrian regime attacks on Idlib which could trigger a massive exodus from the province where around 3 million people live.
Fresh killings come as rebels launch counter-offensive in western Hama province to recapture areas they lost on Thursday to regime forces. Meanwhile, aid groups suspend activities in embattled northwest.
Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglu has asked his Russian counterpart, Lavrov, to stop the bombardments in Idlib province, according to sources speaking on condition of anonymity.
Air strikes and shelling killed eight civilians in north-western Syria on Tuesday after deadly clashes between pro-regime and opposition forces rattled a months-old truce and sparked a new wave of displacement.
Trapped civilians fear the Syrian regime is destroying vital facilities, including hospitals and rescue organisations, to clear the way for brutal ground assaults.
Dozens have died since April 26 in such attacks, war monitor says. Schools, health facilities and residential areas have been hit by the "worst barrel bombing campaign" in opposition-held areas in northwestern Syria in 15 months, UN says.
Syrian state media say militants have attacked a military post belonging to the regime forces in the country's northwest, setting off clashes that killed three people.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 17 people were killed in the last 24 hours by Syrian regime shelling in the northwest.
