Haley warns Russia, Iran of 'dire consequences' over Syria military assault

John Bolton Threatens Syria Over Chemical Weapon Use

The Turkish army has also sent troops into Syrian rebel-held territory further east, in an area north of Aleppo city.

"President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province", Trump tweeted.

UK's United Nations ambassador Karen Pierce said her country "strongly" agreed with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's op-ed on Idlib published in the Wall Street Journal on Monday.

Idlib is the last refuge for the Syrian opposition and home to close to 3 million people, including 1.4 million displaced Syrians hailing from provinces now controlled by the government and close to 1 million children.

Syrian government forces, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, have been massing troops for weeks around Idlib in preparation for an attack.

"I am not going to tell the world ahead of time what we are going to do, it is just not my style", U.S. Defence Secretary Mattis told reporters in Washington on Tuesday.

Some three million people are living in Idlib, half of them Syrians who have fled from other parts of the country. 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.

He said 47 percent of those displaced have moved to camps, 29 percent are staying with families, 14 percent have settled in informal camps and 10 percent are in rented accommodation.

On Monday, its humanitarian chief made an urgent appeal.

The U.N. warned last week that such an offensive would lead to the "worst humanitarian catastrophe in the 21st century". Russian Federation has openly backed the Syrian government's efforts to combat the various terrorist groups operating in its territory, many of which are funded, financed, and supported by Western intelligence agencies in their not-so-covert war against Assad.

Its population ballooned as the regime chalked up a series of victories across the country, reaching deals that saw tens of thousands of rebels and civilians bussed into Idlib.

At least two hospitals and two centres running rescue operations for wounded people were put out of service by shelling and air strikes, according to the Britain-based Observatory and the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisations, which backs medical centres in Syria.

United Nations special envoy Staffan de Mistura was working with Turkey and Russian Federation in Geneva on Monday to seek non-military solutions to the conflicts.

Turkish forces and Turkish-backed opposition fighters now control an area between Afrin and Jarabulus where Ankara had hoped to resettle the millions of refugees.

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 towards its border.
