Gen. Suheil al-Hassan, arrived in northern Syria to spearhead what they called the "Dawn of Idlib" operation.

Syrian opposition activists say an explosion in the country's north has killed at least 18 people and wounded many others.

On Sunday, rescuers in Sarmada used bulldozers to remove the rubble and pull out trapped people, a correspondent for the AFP news agency reported.

An AFP correspondent at the site in the rebel-held town of Sarmada near the Turkish border said the explosion caused two buildings to collapse.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the death toll at 39, including 21 women and children. The explosion collapsed a five-story building, burying numerous victims.

But the cause of the blast was "not yet clear", Abdel Rahman added.

Asked to confirm that he is expecting no movement at all on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no". They are a good team, a solid team, an experienced team.

A rescue worker carried the motionless body of a small child from the wreckage to an ambulance, the AFP correspondent said.

Most of Idlib is controlled by terrorists and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, but the ISIS also has sleeper cells in the area.

In recent months, a series of explosions and assassinations - mainly targeting rebel officials and fighters - have rocked the province.

While some attacks have been claimed by Daesh, most are the result of infighting since a year ago between various other groups.

Meanwhile, Syrian government forces fighting rebels in Idlib province have sent more reinforcements ahead of a potential offensive on the last major rebel stronghold in Syria.

More than 350,000 people have been killed and millions displaced since Syria's civil war started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
