Extremists from a coalition led by Al-Qaeda's former Syria affiliate fired on protesters in northwestern Idlib province on Thursday, a day after killing a demonstrator in the area, a monitor said.The incident comes as the extremist Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) alliance fights pitched battles across opposition-held Idlib province with the Ahrar al-Sham rebel faction.The clashes have killed more than 40 people since they erupted this week, including 27 of the combatants and 11 civilians, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor. More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began with anti-government protests in March 2011 .
