Western and Middle Eastern leaders are working to unite Syria's divided opposition. But Syrian's Bashar al-Assad has already put the brakes on any hopes for a deal.
Syrian forces have warned rebels of an impending assault on Idlib — the last major bastion of opposition to President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war. Leaflets were dropped advising people the surrender.
The Syrian government has acknowledged that hundreds of detainees were killed in state custody. Anchal Vohra met one of the prisoners who along with many others was tortured in Bashar Assad's jails. This is his story.
Russian President Putin said the Syrian military's successes have created conditions for "the start of a political process on a major scale." Syria's Assad said progress would be made in the Astana peace talks.
Germany has decided against military involvement in Syria's civil war, although it welcomes US-led airstrikes against the Assad regime. Marcel Fürstenau unpacks this seeming contradiction.
