Idleb is the last opposition stronghold in Syria. The armed group that controls the area is a UN-listed terrorist organization. The Syrian Government’s military campaign has emptied out entire cities and towns, forcing a million people from their homes in the last few months. The Turkish border is closed. What hope is there for the three million civilians who remain trapped in this area? What is the UN doing to help?
