Idleb resident Community & Chat center

Is one of Syrian Muhafazets that God had bestowed upon it a fascinating landscape and an ancient history. It is Syria’s gate that connects it with Turkey and Europe through Bad AL-Hawa border point.

Edleb is divided into 5 areas with more than a million inhabitants. There are 12 water springs in addition the Oronets river Which crosses the muhafazat from Jisr Ashughor area to Salkin. In this Muhafazet lies half of Syria’s historical hills and landmarks of antiquity such as Ebla, Al-Barra, KoKunaya, Dweiha, Serjella, Jarara and Qalb.

The Muhafazet is also located on the road used by trade convos from Antioch, Afamia, Jerusalem and the Euphrates area.

The surrounding countryside is most attractive: gently rolling uplands where the red soil contrasts with the green of the plants and trees. There are fruit trees everywhere: olives, carefully pruned and tended; apricots, bearing succulent fruit we may meet again in cakes in Damascus; plum trees, with small hard green fruit; pomegranates, whose orange-red flowers used to be a symbol of power and whose heavy fruit is made into a delicious and refreshing drink in the little juice-bars of Aleppo and Damascus. But above all it’s for cherries that the Idleb region is famous. Towards the end of spring small boys on every roadside offer great handfuls of bright gleaming fruit to the passer-by … for a few pence.

For its seven million tress the region provides for nearly all Syria’s requirements of fruit and olives.

In the hilly areas of this delightful region there are many sites that could be developed as "summer holiday centers". T an altitude of 800-900 meters the air is stimulating and the general climate most agreeable.
