Tens of thousands of people have fled a government assault on Idlib, Syria’s last rebel-held province, prompting warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe.

The regime advance comes amid what a senior aid worker described as a “systematic” attack on hospitals in the region. Eight have been hit at the end of December and beginning of January. One such attack in the town of Maarat al-Numan on 3 January killed a baby girl, who was just two hours old, and her father. Two nurses and a doctor were wounded.
