Event

According to local media sources, as many as 107 people have been killed across northwestern Syria between Sunday, December 22, and Monday, December 23. The fatalities come amid renewed clashes between government troops and rebel fighters, predominately in Idlib province. Tens of thousands of civilians have reportedly fled parts of the province toward the border with Turkey to avoid the latest escalation in fighting.

A heightened security presence and violent clashes between opposing security forces are to be expected in Idlib province and throughout northwestern Syria over the coming days and weeks.

Context

To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.

Advice

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
