As army nears their hometown, Syrians grab last belongings

A cat rests atop a closed vegetable stand at a market in the town of Saraqeb, in Syria's northwestern Idlib province on January 31, 2020. After weeks of deadly bombardment by the regime and its Russian ally, many of Saraqeb's homes have been defaced or pounded to smithereens. Nine years into a war that has killed 380,000 people, Idlib, the country's last major stronghold of anti-government opposition is shrinking by the day. / AFP / Omar HAJ KADOUR
