Intense air raids reported on edge of Syria's rebel-held Idlib

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights described the airstrikes as the "most intense" since August when government forces began targeting the southern edge of Idlib province.

The comments came four days after the Turkish president met his Russian and Iranian counterparts for a summit in Tehran, where Erdogan sought to avert a bloody assault in Idlib.

"We're deeply concerned about this recent escalation of violence, which has resulted in the displacement of over 30,000 in the area".

Turkey's president on Monday urged the global community to be aware of its responsibilities in Syria as an assault on Idlib looms.

The rebel-held region of Idlib and adjacent areas are home to nearly three million people, half of whom have been displaced from other areas in the country, according to the UN.

"The Astana process is ongoing, and with the help of the process we will have tangible results", he said, referring to the trilateral process with Iran and Turkey.

The United Nations has warned of a major humanitarian catastrophe if the offensive takes place in the enclave where some three million people live - about half of whom have already been displaced in the seven-year war.

And perhaps more alarming is that the report details that Trump is undecided over whether new retaliatory strikes could entail expanding the attack to hit Assad allies Russian Federation and Iran this time around.

Mr Swanson said that since Friday, mortar and rocket attacks had increased, especially in the northern Hama countryside and southern Idlib rural areas.

That's right, unnamed United States officials are now claiming to be in possession of intelligence which they say shows Assad has already given the order in an absolutely unprecedented level of "pre-crime" telegraphing of events on the battlefield.

The attack, which came in response to what the U.S. and its allies insisted was another chemical attack in Douma, on the outskirts of Damascus, saw 105 cruise missiles being fired from sea and air at Syrian government targets.

The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, backed by allies Russian Federation and Iran, has been preparing a large-scale military onslaught to capture the northwest province of Idlib, the last rebel stronghold in the country hosting some three million people, and adjacent areas.

Real chemicals would be used to make the footage appear more authentic and also to provide samples of allegedly contaminated soil from the scene, the ministry said.

More than 350,000 people have been killed and millions displaced since Syria's civil war started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-Assad protests.

On Monday, its humanitarian chief made an urgent appeal.

Since 2015, Idlib has been home to a complex array of anti-regime forces: secular rebels, Islamists, Syrian jihadists with ties to Al-Qaeda - and their foreign counterparts.

The Trump administration has warned for days about an expected assault on Idlib, the last major stronghold for rebels fighting in Syria, while urging Syrian leader Bashar Assad and his allies not to use chemical weapons.
