An Islamist coalition that includes Syria's al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front has taken over one of the last government strongholds in western Idlib province,.

the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said The Jaish al-Fateh, or Conquest Army, took control of the city of Ariha after a "lightning offensive".

However, the Syrian army said intense fighting was still going on there.

Ariha's fall would leave most of Idlib, bordering Turkey, in rebel hands.

Since late March, rebels have claimed a number of cities in the province, including Idlib and al-Shughour.
