Northwest Syria clashes reportedly kill dozens in biggest toll since March truce

An attack by militant rebel forces in northwest Syria sparked clashes that left 48 people dead, the highest toll since the start of a two-month-old ceasefire, an activist group has said.

Fighting had largely ground to a standstill following a 6 March truce in Idlib, the last major opposition stronghold.

The ceasefire came after a fierce month-long Russian-backed government assault that killed hundreds of civilians and forced almost a million to flee.

Before dawn on Sunday, opposition forces mounted an assault on pro-government troops in the Sahl al-Ghab area, killing 35 while losing 13, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
