United Nations chief calls for prevention of full-scale attack on Syria's Idlib - USA

Erdoğan says Idlib assault would be ‘a grave massacre

Erdogan argued in the opinion article that the price of inaction in Idlib would ultimately lead to a large-scale humanitarian disaster.

Erdogan on Monday said in the Wall Street Journal: "All members of the global community must understand their responsibilities as the assault on Idlib looms".

Washington claims that the Syrian government forces may carry out a chemical weapons attack in Idlib and warned that such actions will have serious consequences.

The Turkish military now has a large presence inside the Idlib Governorate; however, it is still not clear whether or not they plan on confronting the Syrian government forces.

US officials have said in recent days they have evidence that Syrian government forces are preparing chemical weapons ahead of a planned assault on Idlib.

Two rebel commanders said Turkey had ordered the bulk of this force to move towards the Idlib frontlines.

About 3.5 million people are crammed into Idlib and the surrounding areas, at least half of whom have fled vanquished opposition areas.

In a direct warning to the Assad regime, President Trump said: "President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province".

Russian Federation hopes for a peaceful resolution of the situation in Syria's rebel-held province of Idlib but believes it is up to Turkey to separate Islamist militants from the moderate opposition, Russia's Syria envoy said on Tuesday.

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.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued a stern warning on the Syrian government, Russian Federation and Iran over military operations in Idlib.

"Our top line message is there needs to be ways of dealing with this problem that don't turn the next few months in Idlib into the worst humanitarian catastrophe, with the biggest loss of life of the 21st century", Lowcock told reporters in Geneva.

Russia's Defense Ministry has said that a fake chemical attack on civilians has been filmed in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib.

"There is a lack of water storage capacity in numerous areas in which we operate, with just two or three days worth of water available to civilians", she told Reuters. On the contrary, they would create further suffering, alienate and radicalize more Syrians.

"Idlib province is.a sort of zone of responsibility of Turkey; it is their responsibility to separate the moderate opposition from the extremists, from Jabhat al-Nusra and other groups, other terrorist groups", he said. The world will hold them responsible.
