Beirut - Mar 11, 2012 - 12:01
Al Jazeera's Sue Turton in Beirut just reported the following update on the situation in Idlib:
News coming out of (Idlib) is that people that have been injured are stranded because they can’t get to medical treatment because there are Syrian soldiers stopping them. We’re hearing the main hospital is now in the hands of the Syrian soldiers. There are aircraft overhead and as I said tank shelling is still going on in that city. Electricity has been cut, communication lines have been cut, they really do seem to be trying to cut off the city completely and shelling it into submission.
The Free Syrian Army are saying that they just got 1,000 fighters in (Idlib) and that it just seems to be a matter of time really before they are crushed in that place.
