  • Turkey urges global support for cease-fire in Syria's Idlib

He warned that such an offensive would only "create further suffering, alienate and radicalize more Syrians" and "play into the hands of terrorists". Erdogan urged the global community to take action or face "security risks for Turkey, the rest of Europe and beyond".

In recent days, United States officials have said that they have evidence that Syrian government forces are preparing chemical weapons ahead of a planned assault on Idlib.

A new offensive on Idlib would likely uproot 800,000 people, the United Nations warned, causing major problems for relief agencies.

The Turkish Red Crescent fears that new camps set up inside Syria could be overwhelmed by an influx of new arrivals from Idlib province where pro-Syrian government forces are expected to launch a new offensive within days.

Swanson said that since Friday's summit, mortar and rocket attacks had increased, especially in the northern Hama countryside and southern Idlib rural areas.

"If Assad, Russia, and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire".

Turkey is concerned that HTS could seek to use civilians as human shields and prevent them from reaching Afrin.

Restaurant loses $190m in value after dead rat found in soup
An inspection was immediately undertaken at the restaurant, but there was reportedly no trace of rats. Ma said he and his wife went to the hospital where she had a checkup to ensure the baby was healthy.

The threat of force comes after Russian Federation and Iran brushed off objections from the United States and Turkey to back a Syrian operation to wrest Idlib from some 70,000 opposition militants. "And if the concern is the presence of the terrorist groups, let's work together to eliminate them", Cavusoglu said during a joint news conference with his Romanian and Polish counterparts in Bucharest, capital of Romania.

There is an urgent need to make greater progress in the Geneva process, and in particular the creation of a constitutional committee as part of the overall political package, he said.

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

The intensive strikes resumed on Sunday, according to residents and rescuers, as Damascus stepped up its assault on the area after a Russian-Iranian-Turkish summit failed to agree on a ceasefire.

While U.S. officials have said nothing about nerve agents (which has been a clear American red line), even the use of chlorine on a large scale would likely draw another U.S. punitive strike. The worldwide community fears Assad and his allies are preparing to carry out a final assault on the province. The world will hold them responsible.

Russia's Nebenzia responded saying attempts to separate the three Astana guarantors "will not be successful". Many have previously refused to surrender to the regime. According to USA officials, the Russians have twice threatened to conduct military operations in the area over the last 10 days, prompting the US military to warn against any such move and deploy Marine reinforcements to the area.
