CWN Editor's Note: Two villages in Idlib Governorate (map) “are still under the control of jihadist groups,” according to the report. “Here fearsome Islamic rule still holds sway; Sharia, Islamic religious law, is in force; women are forced to wear veils, Christian properties have been confiscated and Christian symbols such as crosses have been torn down.”
