Idlib assault would lead to risks for Europe - Erdogan

Асад санкционировал использование химоружия против повстанцев – СМИ

"There is a lack of water storage capacity in numerous areas in which we operate, with just two or three days worth of water available to civilians", she told Reuters. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

But Russia and Iran have rejected Turkey's call for a ceasefire.

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.

Turkey, which now hosts some 3.5 million refugees, has also said that it could not accommodate any more migrants if an attack on Idlib caused a new surge of refugees toward its border.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal this week that called on the global community to stop the Syrian Arab Army's (SAA) upcoming offensive in Idlib, Al-Masdar News reports. The talks are hosted by United Nations envoy Staffan de Mistura and also include senior Russian and Turkish officials.

It added that "the munitions documented were built around industrially-produced Iranian artillery rockets known to have been supplied to forces commanded by the government".

"The Turks are making sure they have enough munitions that keep them going for a long while", he added.

The Turkish Red Crescent official told MEE that only civilians who left their weapons behind would be admitted into the organisation's camps. They are believed to be holding them in the Safaa area.

About 2.9 million people live in the opposition-held area, which comprises most of Idlib province and adjacent small parts of Latakia, Hama and Aleppo provinces.

Tehran and Moscow have helped Assad turn the course of the war against an array of opponents ranging from Western-backed rebels to Islamist militants.

Hurricane Florence weakens to Category 2, still thought risky
Florence is moving slowly, about 12 miles per hour (19 km/h) on a meandering track along the coast. The storm's centre was about 165 miles (265 km) east of Wilmington, North Carolina, at 9 a.m.

A Syrian regime offensive on the opposition province of Idlib could lead to the 21st century's worst loss of life.

Various so-called "de-escalation zones" were agreed among the three guarantor powers in Syria as a result of multiple rounds of talks, including Idlib.

Complicating matters, the Turkish armed forces also have several outposts in Idlib in support of rebel groups.

"Some even said that they are preparing to die as Idlib is the last safe place for many of them".

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.

On Friday, the presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey failed to agree during the Tehran summit on how to stave off military action on the northwestern province.

Turkey is a leading opposition supporter which has troops in the country and has erected 12 observation posts around rebel-held Idlib.

He also noted Turkey's role in protecting the Syrian people, as it hosts the largest number of refugees in the world at 3.5 million.

The jihadists have so far resisted calls by Ankara to dissolve themselves or take an offer that allows fighters to join FSA factions after breaking all ties to al Qaeda.
