  • Erdoğan says Idlib assault would be ‘a grave massacre

President Tayyip Erdogan has warned of a humanitarian disaster and security risks for Turkey.

"We can not allow terrorists to hold hostage and use hundreds of thousands of people of Idlib as human shields", said the Russian ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia.

Regarding the peace talks, de Mistura said earlier in Geneva that his discussions with the senior Russian, Turkish and Iranian officials taking place on September 10 and September 11 for the new process are the best "roadmap we can see". Besides, there is also a list containing the names of civil activists. On the contrary, they would create further suffering, alienate and radicalize more Syrians.

Mr de Mistura's spokesman, Michael Contet, said any debriefing by the envoy about the meeting will be "reserved" for comments he plans to make to the UN Security Council next Tuesday.

"With all our generosity, we have gone to extraordinary lengths to alleviate suffering of the Syrian people, hosting some 3.5 million refugees, more than any other country in the world".

Russian Federation and Iran rejected Turkey's call for a ceasefire at the summit in Tehran on Friday.

Turkey has continued to provide humanitarian relief to opposition areas in Idlib and Latakia - situated in Syria's north - and operates a number of military observation posts in the province.

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.

"We've been hearing the regime and Russian Federation threaten to bomb us with chemical weapons", said Hadheefa al-Shahhad.

"I also want to reiterate what I said last week to the Assad regime and anyone else contemplating the use of chemical weapons in Syria", Haley added. There are allegations that the British forces have been helping rebels "stage" an attack in Idlib that would release some chlorine gas and provide a pretext for the US-led intervention.

Ashrawi said the Palestinian leadership was weighing its options, including ending security discussions with the U.S. The court has been hobbled by the refusal of the U.S., Russia, China and other major nations to join.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday appealed to Russia, Iran and Turkey to "spare no effort to find solutions that protect civilians" in Syria's Idlib and said it was "absolutely essential" a full-scale battle was avoided.

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.

Haley, the United Nations envoy, again warned Assad and his allies that any assault on Idlib would be considered "reckless" by the USA and "the consequences will be dire. Our fear as humanitarians is the worst may be ahead of us", said Laerke reading from the statement.

Witnesses said hundreds of families had begun fleeing from villages and towns in southern Idlib that have been the target of heavy strikes closer to camps near the Turkish border.
