Map of Syria and the Region
(Worthy News) - The United Nations is warning of catastrophic consequences facing civilians trapped in Syria's Idlib province.
"The conflict in Syria has already caused unspeakable suffering to millions of people forced to live under siege or to leave their country," warned Olaf Skoog, the permanent representative of Sweden to the United Nations. "We are deeply concerned about the escalating military action by the Syrian regime and Russia in northwest Syria with potentially catastrophic humanitarian consequences for civilians."
Residents of Syria's Idlib province took to the streets Friday protesting against what many there believe is an impending assault in the region.
For weeks, Syrian forces, backed by Russian, Iranian and Turkish fighters, have encircled the province which is now the rebels' last stronghold position. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
