Former diplomat gives insight into Syrian conflict

The Syrian regime and its Russian ally recently stepped up air strikes on jihadist-held Idlib province. Syria's brutal civil war is now more than eight years old and has drawn in world and regional powers, claimed over 350,000 lives and displaced 13 million people.
