Idlib Governorate: Governorate in Syria
Idlib Governorate is one of the 14 governorates (provinces) of Syria. It is situated in northwestern Syria, bordering Turkey. Reports of its area vary, depending on the source, from 5,933 km² to 6,097 km². The Governorate had a pre-war population of 1,464,000. The provincial capital is Idlib. In 2011, the Governorate was taken over by rebel militias, who have controlled it since then. In 2017, the governorate territory came under the nominal control of the Syrian Salvation Government, with Tahrir al-Sham becoming the dominant militia in the region.
