Turkey ships arms to Idlib to help repel regime assault says rebels

Turkey deploys military vehicles to Syria

Bolton's words echo his earlier warnings in August that the U.S. would respond "very strongly" if Assad's forces were to use chemical weapons in a bit to retake Idlib.

Russian Federation will brief the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday about the results of the Tehran summit it held with Iran and Turkey on the fate of Syria's Idlib province, diplomats said. On the contrary, they would create further suffering, alienate and radicalize more Syrians.

In the newspaper article, Erdogan called on the global community to take action and warned that "the entire world stands to pay the price" otherwise.

Erdogan had called for a truce in an attempt to avoid a full-scale Syrian government assault on Idlib.

In late August, de Mistura warned of a "perfect storm" facing Idlib amid the suspected strikes by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Russian-backed government forces to clear militants from the al-Qaida and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham - also known as the al-Nusra Front - militant groups from the area.

The Turkish leader called on a "comprehensive global counter-terrorism operation" and that the assistance of pro-Turkey rebels would be "crucial" in Idlib.

Vassily Nebenzia was briefing the council on last Friday's summit of the presidents of the three Astana countries in Tehran, stressing that they are committed "to continue helping with a definitive elimination of terrorism in Syria". Besides, there is also a list containing the names of civil activists.

France's foreign minister said on Wednesday that the indiscriminate bombing of Syria's Idlib region by Russian, Syrian and Iranian forces could amount to war crimes.

The three guarantors bear a particular responsibility since they have their own posts around the situation in Idlib and they have negotiated for a long time the de-escalation zones and different other forms and arrangements, said the United Nations chief.

"In order for our efforts to succeed, guarantees must be given to civilians and moderate opposition groups that they will not be targeted once they separate from terrorists", Sinirlioglu said.

The offensive came just hours after more than 60 air raids killed at least four civilians in southern Idlib on Saturday.

"Russia, Iran and Assad are demolishing Idlib and asking us to call it peace", she said.

At the summit in Tehran, Erdogan, Russia's Vladimir Putin and Iran's Hassan Rouhani agreed in a statement that there could be no military solution to the conflict and it could only end through a negotiated political process.

"To recapture eastern Ghouta in April, government forces launched numerous indiscriminate attacks in densely populated civilian areas, which included the use of chemical weapons", it said.

On Tuesday US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Assad has been well warned against any chemical weapons use in an anticipated assault on Idlib province.

The Idlib area forms part of an arc of territory in the northwest representing the last big area held by the opposition.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis declined to say Tuesday whether the United States would take military action against the Syrian regime should it use chemical weapons, but he did say Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has "been warned".
