The UN has voiced concerns over rising violence in Syria's Idlib governorate.
 
Increasing conflict has caused the deaths of many civilians and aidworkers, and led to the loss of humanitarian support.
 
UN deputy spokesman Farhan Haq made the remarks on Monday, saying the UN condemns the violence and attacks in the region, and is calling for peace.

"The United Nations continues to call on all parties, and those with influence over them, to ensure the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure in line with their obligations under international humanitarian law."
 
Last week, two roadside bombs exploded in Idlib, resulting in property losses.
 
An explosion also rocked a major checkpoint in the area, causing more destruction.
 
The violence continues following deals reached between Syrian army and various militant groups.
 
Since then the militants have moved from Damascus and other areas to Idlib.
