UN chief concerned about airstrikes in Idlib of Syria

Syrians gather amidst destruction in Zardana in the mostly rebel-held northern Syrian Idlib province in the aftermath of air strikes in the area late

"We are alarmed by the renewed escalation of hostilities and hope that the guarantors will redouble their efforts to avoid seeing a scenario like that of East Gutta or Aleppo again, ' the United Nations coordinator stated, because after evacuating the civilians from these two cities to Idlib, 'there is no other location to move them any more", Moumtzis added.

Panos Moumtzis of U.N. OCHA says military escalation could make Idlib's situation "much more complicated and brutal" than other conflict zones in Syria.

His comments came after several deadly air strikes in recent days in Idlib that have left dozens of people dead, including children.

Fighting on the edge of the towns began early morning Friday, shortly after airstrikes carried out by Syrian warplanes on the village of Zardana in northeast Idlib killed at least 51 terrorists.

In this January 11, 2013 file citizen journalism image, provided by Edlib News Network, ENN, which has been authenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, rebels from al-Qaida-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as the Nusra Front, wave their brigade flag, as they step on the top of a Syrian air force helicopter at Taftanaz air base that was captured by the rebels in Idlib province, northern Syria.

"This is the fiercest attack in around three years", he told AFP. Russian Federation is a main backer of Bashar Assad's forces and has helped turn the tide of war in his favor with a campaign of airstrikes.

Since Russia intervened in support of the Syrian regime in 2015, the government has regained control of about half of the country. "Our worry is that with the Idlib situation we may have not (yet) seen the worst in Syria".

It was designated a year ago as a de-escalation zone, but violence has been creeping up again.

"The past seven years of war in Syria have shown that violence only fuels more violence, hatred and vengeance - and further fragmentation of a society torn apart".

Last year, Turkey, Iran and Russian Federation agreed in Astana to establish de-escalation zones in the northern province of Idlib and parts of neighboring Latakia, Hama and Aleppo.

"The humanitarian response on the ground is really at a breaking point".

"We are on high alert", he said. It brings the number of people internally displaced in the war-ravaged country to 6.2 million, while there are still some 5.6 million Syrian refugees in neighboring countries, according to United Nations figures.
