Erdogan urges Russia, Iran to stop 'disaster' in Idlib

Attack on Idlib could lead to worst loss of life this century: UN official

Attack on Idlib could lead to worst loss of life this century: UN official

Erdogan said that a focus on the potential use of chemical weapons alone was not enough. "The United States followed through when we said that we would respond to the use of chemical weapons". Whatever the United States promises them, Kurds must look back and understand how they were betrayed by the U.S. in the last hundred years.

"A staged provocation of so-called "chemical weapons" used by the Syrian army against civilians is now being filmed in Jisr al-Shughur", the ministry said in a statement carried by Russian news wires Tuesday.

"We're not talking about a military offensive", the Russian ambassador said.

In turn, the head of the General staff of the French army françois Lecointre also warned that he is ready to strike at targets in Syria if Damascus during the attack would use chemical weapons. Assad "has been warned", Mattis said.

"The first time around (Assad) lost 17 percent of his pointy nosed air force airplanes". "We are trying to find a solution to this problem but as we see it this is really the only way".

Mattis declined to confirm whether he has been in consultations with the United Kingdom or France on any military response.

More than 30,000 people have so far fled their homes in northwest Syria since Syrian government and allied forces resumed air and ground bombardments there last week, the United Nations agency coordinating relief efforts said on Monday. "It must not be transformed into a bloodbath".

Ryder Cup 2018: Tony Finau named as final United States wildcard
Xander Schauffele , believed to be Finau's main competition for the final pick, finished a shot out of a playoff at the BMW. Regardless of which player is chosen for the final spot, the US should have a strong team heading into Paris.

Swanson said that since Friday's summit, mortar and rocket attacks had increased, especially in the northern Hama countryside and southern Idlib rural areas.

"The Syrian regime seeks to legitimize its operation on counter-terrorism grounds".

This is contrary to worldwide humanitarian law, the OCHA spokesperson said, adding that one of the hospitals was also in a protected "deconfliction zone", whose coordinates had been given to the warring parties to spare it from attack. The US is concerned they could eventually be used to launch another chemical attack as well as a conventional assault.

De Mistura will meet on Monday and Tuesday with the guarantor countries of Astana process - Turkey, Russia, and Iran.

Mark Lowcock, the UN's new humanitarian chief, warned on Monday that a large-scale military operation against Idlib could create "the worst humanitarian catastrophe" of this century.

Haley said the Trump administration hasn't seen any actions "to indicate that Russia, Iran and Assad are interested in a political solution".

For weeks, regime troops backed by Russian Federation and Iran have massed around Idlib's periphery, with deadly air strikes, shelling, and barrel bombs falling with increased intensity in recent days.
