Humanitarian crisis worsens in Syria as crippling assault on Idlib continues

"This (A full-scale attack) would unleash a humanitarian nightmare unlike any seen in the blood-soaked Syrian conflict", said the UN chief in a press encounter at UN Headquarters in NY. The attacks have displaced 30,000 people with nowhere to go.

Various so-called "de-escalation zones" were agreed among the three guarantor powers in Syria as a result of multiple rounds of talks, including Idlib. "It must not be transformed into a blood bath".

"If the concern is the presence of terrorist groups, let's work together to eliminate them", Cavusoglu said at a news conference in Romania.

Russia's United Nations ambassador said "terrorists" can't be allowed to hold hundreds of thousands of people as "human shields" in Idlib where he said "tens of thousands" of fighters linked to al-Qaida, the Islamic State and other extremist groups are concentrated.

"In Idlib, we're watching very closely what the Assad regime, aided and abetted by the Iranians and the Russians are up to", Mattis told Pentagon reporters. "Ensure full respect for worldwide humanitarian law". Meanwhile the work of professionally faking scenes of rescue workers helping civilians has already begun, they say.

During the seven-year Syrian conflict, the West has accused Damascus on a number of occcasions of using chemical weapons against the civilian population. "Beyond the immediate human toll, such use would lead to a situation spiraling out of control", he warned.

Haley said the Astana process has failed "to stop the violence or to promote a political solution".

Abu Jassim said he and his family were fleeing the latest bombardment near the southern town of Khan Sheikhun, after already having been displaced several times within the province due to the war.

Russian Federation briefed the 15-member U.N. Security Council on Tuesday on the Tehran meeting, which was held as part of the so-called Astana process.

On Monday, the United Nations envoy is scheduled to hold a meeting with representatives of the three guarantors of the Syrian ceasefire - Russia, Iran and Turkey.

"Film crews from several Middle East TV channels and also a regional branch of a leading U.S. news TV channel arrived in Jisr ash-Shugur this morning for filming". "We can not leave the Syrian people to the mercy of Bashar Assad", Erdogan wrote in the WSJ.

Erdogan had called for a truce in an attempt to avoid a full-scale Syrian government assault on Idlib.

Pointing to a United States missile strike on a Syrian air base in April 2017 after Assad's jets launched an alleged chemical attack in Idlib, Mattis noted that the Syrian leader had suffered massive losses to his air force. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed.
