As promised, some sources for this area of conflict.
Start with Sana the Syrian Arab news Source
Step News Agency covers this area as well, but can be difficult to navigate in the translated version. It is domestic, so they do not offer an English one. Has to be translated with third party.
Al-Masdar News is my primary source for this area of conflict.
Rojava Defense Units covers the area primarily from the perspective of the SDF Kurds.
Cᴀʟɪʙʀᴇ Oʙsᴄᴜʀᴀ focuses on identifying arms from irregular groups. Writes more extensively on his website

Woofers "I do Syria stuff. Mostly in the north. Now focusing on reconstruction"
MrRevinsky covers jihadists groups and debunks Russian bull#, but I linked his Syria/Idlib thread which is updated daily it seems.
Theres plenty more, and the key is to look for re-tweets in their feed of other accounts who will add exclusive content and grow the list of regular sources. Sometimes a source will only update like once a week, others daily. Some will have images and videos, others will only have text of breaking events. I tell you this, there is no shortage whatsoever.
If you find a video you cannot find on youtube for an embed, you can just go to www.downloadtwittervideo.com, enter the url and save it. Then you can upload it to youtube, or if you want I can upload it for you if you ask me. The thing is though, many times the video is already there but uploaded in either Arabic, Turkic, Kurdish or some other language that will not show if you search in English. That changed in the middle of me covering Mosul liberation a year and a half ago.
I do check in here now and then, if you need help finding something just ask or send me a PM.
