There is nothing left of Haleem Tamro’s house – or the village where it stood.
As she makes her way unsteadily across a carpet of rubble she points to the spot where two of her children were killed when it was flattened by airstrikes three months ago.
“Look at what they did to us, my house, my neighbour’s house, two of my daughters were killed here. My husband’s legs were cut. It was a massacre. What will I do? I don’t know,” she says.
The family now exist in a derelict building – surviving on handouts. Her husband Yasser, who struggles to walk and no longer works, fears even worse may be about to come.
Idlib is home to huge numbers of people who have already been uprooted by the conflict – but in this last rebel stronghold, they no longer feel safe.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is warning of a looming disaster if a major offensive is launched by President Bashar al Assad and his allies.
He claims a flood of refugees would cause a massive humanitarian and security crisis for Turkey, the rest of Europe and beyond.
The signs of a new crisis are already there.
At the Turkish border, those that have permits are leaving for good but most cannot cross. I met three young men whose village was under assault.
“We came because the situation over there is not stable,” said one of the men. “There are airstrikes, there’s a war and the army are preparing to advance onto us and there’s no work, and poverty.”
The UN office for the co-ordination of humanitarian affairs said more than 30,000 people have already been displaced because of the fighting.
Spokesman Jena Laerke said: “The latest escalation is already impacting civilians in a dramatic way.
“Our fear as humanitarians is the worst may be ahead of us. The safety and protection of some 2.9 million civilians residing in Idlib and surrounding areas is at risk.”
In Geneva, diplomats from Russia, Iran and Turkey have been meeting but it is unclear whether the talks will avert a humanitarian catastrophe.
Any ceasefire would have to deal with the tens of thousands of militants standing against President Assad.
The Syrian government and its Russian backers claim Idlib is a “nest of terrorists”. There are groups there with links to al Qaeda but they represent a tiny fraction of the population.
Most people in the province are civilians and they are weary of war and vulnerable.
