  • Syria Strikes Kill 15 Civilians After Jihadist Attack: Monitor

The bombing raids hit a string of towns and villages in the northwest province of Idlib, which is nearly entirely controlled by various jihadist and hardline rebels.

With the United States dollars 1.8 billion appeal for Syria only 26 percent funded, the UN Regional Humanitarian Coordinator said on Monday that the worldwide response to the seven-year conflict was "really at a breaking point".

Moumtzis said that a major battle for Idlib could be "much more complicated and brutal" than fighting for eastern Aleppo and eastern Ghouta - two opposition-held areas that surrendered with evacuations in 2016 and 2018, respectively.

The United Nations is warning of escalated fighting in the Syrian province of Idlib, where 2.5 million civilians are trapped.

Fuaa and Kafraya are the only two places in Syria now designated as besieged by the United Nations after the government recaptured the Yarmuk Palestinian camp in southern Damascus.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham terrorists were "heavily shelling" the towns, both in northwestern Idlib Province, and had broken into them late Saturday.

They came under siege in 2015, when rebels ousted regime forces from the vast majority of Idlib province.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Sunday called for an investigation into the the airstrikes that reportedly left dozens dead in the village of Zardana in Syria's Idlib governorate, his spokesperson said.

In a statement, Mr Guterres expressed "deep concern" about the strikes and called for a "full investigation into the attacks, especially allegations that there was also a second strike targeting first responders, to establish accountability".

He reiterated that Idlib was a de-escalation zone, established as part of an agreement reached in May 2017 in Astana by the three guarantor nations of the Syrian ceasefire - Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Syrian forces later moved to liberate other militant-held areas in the provinces of Homs and Hama.

He said Monday that 920,000 people were displaced within Syria between January and April, the highest number of any four-month span since the war began. Its local rivals hold about a third and the regime controls about 10 per cent, according to the Observatory.

Despite the fact the Syrian government has regained control of most of the territory and the war is now confined to specific areas, internal displacement continues to be massive, according to the UN.

The White Helmets say at least 16 more people were killed by Syrian government airstrikes over the weekend.
