Idlib assault would lead to humanitarian catastrophe, Turkey warns

Turkey deploys military vehicles to Syria

Russian Federation and Iran, which support Assad's regime, and Turkey, which backs the moderate opposition, have been in close cooperation for the last 1.5 years that aim at finding a solution to the Syrian conflict.

On Sunday, government forces bombed the village of Hobeit in Idlib province, killing an infant girl and wounding several other civilians, the Syrian Civil Defence search-and-rescue group reported.

"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 Kremlin's disinformation campaign is ramping up ahead of the planned Russian and Syrian government operation in Idlib, billed as the last major battle of the Syrian war.

Russia's ambassador to the UN met Haley's threat with a denial that Syria has any chemical weapons, as the UN secretary-general warned of a potential "bloodbath" during Tuesday's UN Security Council meeting on the crisis in Idlib, Syria.

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

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

Violence has displaced 30,000 people in Idlib and the adjacent province of Hama this month alone.

World's richest person Jeff Bezos commits $2bn to help homeless, pre-schools
The Day 1 Academies Fund will establish full-scholarship Montessori-like preschools where "the child will be the customer". Bezos said it was unsurprising and even normal to face questions when a company like Amazon becomes so big.

He told council members there is "an urgent need" to separate opposition fighters seeking a political settlement from the "terrorists" in Idlib, and appealed to those with influence to exert pressure to achieve this.

Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Mark Lowcock's comments in Geneva came days after Iran and Russian Federation backed a military campaign in the rebel-held area despite Turkey's pleas for a cease-fire.

U.S. officials have in recent days said additional action would follow if Assad were to use the banned weapons in rebel-held Idlib.

The province and its surrounding areas are the last major enclave held by rebels opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

"I think ideally we'd like to stop the regime assault and win some time to move HTS out of idlib", said one Turkish official, speaking anonymously to discuss a sensitive matter.

Trump has twice ordered USA -led strikes against targets in Syria in response to what Washington called the Assad government's use of chemical weapons against civilians. "Around four weeks ago, we knew that British intelligence was working towards a chemical attack in order to blame the Syrian government, to hold Syria responsible", Mr Black said on Al Mayadeen, an Arab news channel based in Beirut.

"We stand by this warning". "That's something we're monitoring very closely", OCHA spokesman David Swanson said. After more than seven years of civil war, they face a familiar choice - get away as fast as you can, or stay put and risk death.

Some three million people are living in Idlib, half of them Syrians who have fled from other parts of the country.
