As the last of the 29 patients were evacuated from Eastern Ghouta overnight Thursday, intense clashes were seen in a number of de-escalation zones in Syria with 60 killed in Idlib province Friday. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a London-based activist group, at least 19 civilians, including seven children, and 44 fighters were killed as a result of fighting between forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad and factions loyal to Hay'at Tahrir al Sham, the dominant force in Idlib, one of the last rebel strongholds in Syria.Despite being one of the four de-escalation zones, fighting has been intensifying as Assad's forces push further into the province.The Eastern Ghouta province, another of the four de-escalation zones, also witnessed seven air raids, according to the Observatory, after the last of the patients were evacuated from the province overnight Thursday.
