The group will work out a set of tasks for anti-aircraft and anti-subversive and sabotage defense as well as protection against mines, the ministry said.

Last week, the United States, France and Britain threatened to respond if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons in its offensive to retake Idlib province.

Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Turkish foreign minister, said in an exclusive interview with The Times that the suggestion was prompted by knowledge that an attack by President Assad's forces on the rebel stronghold in the Idlib province was imminent.

On Aug. 26, the Russian Defense Ministry said that English-speaking foreign experts were preparing a false-flag "chemical attack" in Syria using chlorine-filled rockets so that the Syrian government will be accused.

"The lives of 2.9 million people are at stake, and global mutually threatening messages and warnings and counter-warnings are taking place in the last few days".

"The rebels, as well as desperate civilians, have sheltered in Idlib, but now there is no other "Idlib" into which they can flee", the Soufan Group think tank said.

An assault on Idlib by Damascus and Moscow could be the last major battle of the civil war that has torn Syria apart since 2011.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem, speaking during a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Thursday, said: "We are at the final stage of solving the crisis in Syria and liberating our whole territory from terrorism".

"There is a ideal storm based on warnings, counter-warnings [from the United States and Russia]", said Staffan de Mistura, UN envoy to Syria.

"We are concerned not just about a potential chemical weapons attack, but we are concerned about any kind of escalation of violence in Idlib that would put civilians and civilian infrastructure in Idlib at risk", she added.

On Thursday the Kremlin called Idlib a hotbed of terrorists and said not tackling the problem was not a good option.

Idlib falls within a network of de-escalation zones - endorsed by Turkey, Russia and Iran - in which acts of aggression are expressly prohibited. Turkey and the West fear a new humanitarian catastrophe and another wave of refugees into Europe as a result.

The Ustinov evidently cruised southward after its English Channel passage and eventually slipped through the Strait of Gibraltar before making what Russian news reports this week described as a "business call" at the port of Algiers.
