Turkish President Warns Of Humanitarian Disaster In Idlib

Turkish President Warns Of Humanitarian Disaster In Idlib

Turkey urged the worldwide community on Tuesday "to vocally and actively support" Turkish calls for a cease-fire in Syria's last rebel-held stronghold in neighboring Idlib province where Syria and its allies have intensified attacks ahead of an expected offensive.

In an article in today's Wall Street Journal, he calls on the worldwide community to take action, and warns that "the entire world stands to pay the price" otherwise.

Mr Black said Britain's MI6 intelligence service was planning a chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people, which it would then blame on Mr Assad.

"In order for our efforts to succeed, guarantees must be given to civilians and moderate opposition groups that they will not be targeted once they separate from terrorists", Sinirlioglu said. "Every day, I need water, hay and bran to feed them".

"Russia has the power to stop the catastrophe looming in Idlib", she said.

"We've tried to convey the message in recent days that if there's a third use of chemical weapons, the response will be much stronger", Bolton said on Monday.

At the summit in Tehran, Erdogan, Russia's Vladimir Putin and Iran's Hassan Rouhani agreed in a statement that there could be no military solution to the conflict and it could only end through a negotiated political process.

HTS is considered a terrorist group by Russian Federation and Turkey, with Russian Federation and the Syrian government using the group's presence in the area as one of the main justifications for its assault.

Idlib, known as the last stronghold for rebels who sought to overthrow Assad, faces a "perfect storm", United Nations Special Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura said late last month.

It will be the ideal Western conspiracy, Russian Federation says.

Many made a dash for Syria's northern border with Turkey, with just under half seeking refuge in displacement camps and others living with local families or renting apartments.

But he stressed that "there are 100 civilians, a lot of them women and children, for every fighter in Idlib".

Haley warned of dire consequences if mass casualties were caused if the assault went ahead.

"The president expects us to have military options in the event that chemical weapons are used", Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford said Saturday, "We have provided updates to him on the development of those military options". The Turkish army has also sent troops into Syrian rebel-held territory further east, in an area north of Aleppo city. "There is no doubt that such provocations are being prepared", he added, noting that terrorist groups operating in Syria are on the defensive and are getting desperate, as the Syrian government's mission to combat and defeat the terrorist threat continues to make progress.
