Syrian government forces attack rebel-held city

False-flag failure… US cuts to the chase to defend its terrorists in Syria

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said on Tuesday the UN Security Council would meet on Friday to discuss the precarious situation in the province.

On Tuesday Russia, an ally of president Bashar al-Assad's regime, resumed air strikes on Idlib after a 22-day pause.

More than half of Idlib is controlled by militants from Syria's former Al-Qaeda affiliate, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), while much of the rest is held by rebels backed by Turkey. "The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy", Mr. Trump tweeted.

"Let us be clear, it remains our firm stance that if President Bashar al-Assad chooses to again use chemical weapons, the United States and its Allies will respond swiftly and appropriately".

The UN Security Council is also due to meet Friday to address the situation in Idlib amid growing fears of an attack and the possible use of chemical weapons.

President Trump issued a four-word reply Saturday after several speakers at weekend funerals for singer Aretha Franklin and U.S. But they spoke of reconciling with him during personal moments afterward, and, as Bush said , "the rivalry melted away".

The White House warned Syria's President Bashar Assad on Tuesday that if he chooses to use chemical weapons, the US and its allies "will respond swiftly and appropriately", pushing back against an expected Syrian government offensive against an opposition stronghold.

"Let's try to avoid that the last probably major battle of the Syrian territorial conflict...ends in a bloodbath", he told reporters in Geneva, insisting Russian Federation and Turkey held "the key for the soft solution to the Idlib issue".

On Wednesday, regime artillery and rocket fire targeted several areas in the province including the HTS-held town of Jisr al-Shughur, according to the Britain-based Observatory, which relies on a network of sources inside Syria.

The human rights group Amnesty International said in a statement on Wednesday that the lives of "millions of people in Idlib are now in the hands of Russia, Turkey and Iran", and urged all parties not to attack civilians.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also told Reuters that the situation in Idlib is of ongoing concern for Russian Federation.

Coca-Cola does already have over 500 brands in its stable including Fanta, innocent smoothies and Powerade sports drinks. Doing so, Whitbread said, would "provide headroom" to expand Premier Inn in Britain and Germany.

Moscow has been carrying out strikes in Syria since September 2015, using aircraft at the Hmeimim base in Latakia province.

De Mistura said there were about 10,000 fighters with UN-recognized terrorist organizations now in Idlib.

He said Turkey has conveyed to Russian Federation its condemnation of the recent attack in Syria's Idlib. De Mistura, whose years of efforts to push forward a Syrian peace deal have achieved no breakthroughs, insisted that he would pursue his efforts to set up a committee to write a new Syrian constitution.

The United Nations and aid groups have warned a military campaign could spark one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in a war that has already killed more than 350,000 people and displaced millions.
