US warns Syria, Russia on possible Idlib offensive

Anadolu Agency

The U.S. on Tuesday warned Russia and the Syrian regime against any potential offensive on the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned Friday that a possible military offensive on Idlib would be a “disaster”.

Located near the Turkish border, Idlib in May was designated a “de-escalation zone” where acts of aggression are expressly forbidden.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on protesters with unexpected ferocity.

UN officials estimate that hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in the conflict.
