DAMASCUS - 22 August 2019: Syrian government forces have opened a corridor in the country's northwest for people who want to cross out of insurgent territory to army lines, according to France 24.

Damascus "announces the opening of a humanitarian corridor in the (town) of Soran," a foreign ministry source said.

It said the corridor would allow civilians to leave the southern part of Idlib province and the north of Hama, where the army has advanced against rebels with fierce air and ground attacks.
