M4 Idlib corridor situation (22 April 2015)

Following take over of Idlib by rebels in March 2015, pressure increased on remaining loyalists positions in Idlib. Loyalists still control cities of Jish al-Shughur and Ariha, as weel as fortified positions such as Mastumah and Brick factory. Rebels have started to capture villages north of M4 road (Al Mushayr, Bzaytah), getting closer to the strategic road. Meanwhile, Loyalists try to consolidate their positions north of Ariha (Nahlaya, Muqbilah) and unseuccessfully attempted several times to advance toward Qmenas from the Brick Factory
