Russian Federation confirms strikes on 'terrorist' targets in Syria's Idlib

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights which relies on sources in Syria for its reports said at least nine civilians were killed in renewed Russian air raids in Idlib province Russian Federation confirms strikes on 'terrorist' targets in Syria's Idlib

Konashenkov stressed that all Russian air strikes were against terrorist targets identified and confirmed on the basis of several sources and far away from communities.

"God forbid, a serious massacre could take place if there is a rain of missiles there", said Erdogan, whose country has supported Syrian rebels.

In a statement, U.S. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said both Pompeo and Çavuşoğlu "agreed any [Bashar al-] Assad regime military offensive in Idlib would be an unacceptable, reckless escalation of the conflict in Syria".

Worldwide calls mounted on Wednesday (Sep 5) to avoid a "massacre" by regime forces in Syria's last rebel-held province of Idlib, two days before a summit between key powers backing the government and opposition.

The request comes as Turkish and United States forces are carrying out joint patrols in the northwestern Syrian city of Manbij as part of a roadmap to clear the area of YPG militants.

Damascus and its main backer, Moscow, have vowed to root out the jihadist groups that dominate Idlib province.

The Trump administration announced Tuesday afternoon that Russian Federation and Syria are gearing up to launch a mass strike in Syria on behalf of embattled President Bashar al-Assad, risking the lives of "millions of innocent civilians", according to an announcement.

The future of Idlib is likely to be determined at a summit on Friday, when the leaders of Russia, Iran and Turkey will gather in Tehran to discuss the future of Syria.

"The regime and its backers must stop their military campaign in all its forms to allow the UN-led political process to have a chance to succeed", USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in a statement. Ankara is sheltering 3.5 million Syrian refugees.

Turkey, Russia and Iran a year ago designated Idlib a so-called "de-escalation zone", but that deal did not cover former Al-Qaeda affiliate HTS.

Meanwhile De Mistura on Tuesday pleaded with the Russian and Turkish presidents to "look each other in the eyes" and find a solution that avoids a humanitarian tragedy in the region.

Assad's government has been accused of repeatedly using chemical weapons during the seven-year-old war.

The attacks were carried out after the US government urged the Syrian government, which is assisted by Russian Federation and Iran in its civil war, not to attack the rebel stronghold where approximately 3 million people live.
