Syrian government forces attack rebel-held city

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

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

Damascus, backed by allies Russian Federation and Iran, has been preparing an assault to recover Idlib and adjacent areas of the northwest, and resumed air strikes along with Russian Federation on Tuesday after weeks of lull.

Troops have been massing on the edges of the northwestern province which borders Turkey for weeks, raising fears of a humanitarian disaster on a scale not yet seen in Syria's seven-year conflict. Reports of an imminent assault come despite an anticipated summit meeting this coming Friday between Turkey, Russia, and Syria, to discuss the situation in Idlib.

On Tuesday the United Nations special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, said panic was spreading among the 3 million citizens of Idlib province as he suggested the Assad government and its allies had set 10 September as the date for a full-scale bombardment of the last large rebel enclave.

Despite these claims, Israel and the United States say Iran has been building its military presence in Syria, as well as transferring arms to its Shi'ite allies in neighboring Iraq. He also could not comment on reports that Russian warplanes had carried out air strikes on Idlib earlier Tuesday.

Many of those living in Idlib are rebels and civilians who were bussed out of their hometowns in other parts of the country that have come back under regime control.

"President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province".

As I noted earlier in the week, Wallace shares similar attributes to Poulter, who brings a unique spark to the European team room. For the continent to wrestle back the trophy these wildcards will be under pressure to repay the faith shown by their captain.

Idlib is one of the "de-escalation" zones set up as a result of talks by Russia, Turkey and Iran past year as Damascus regained control of more of the country. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported nine people killed. "We know that the Syrian armed forces are getting ready to solve this problem", Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, calling Idlib a "pocket of terrorism".

"Our cooperation with Russian Federation now is very important".

The United States warned Syria Tuesday it will respond "swiftly and appropriately" if it uses chemical weapons against its people.

Friday's summit in Tehran between key power brokers Erdogan, Putin and Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is expected to determine the scope and timing of any assault on Idlib.

"President Donald J. Trump has warned that such an attack would be a reckless escalation of an already tragic conflict and would risk the lives of hundreds of thousands of people", she added.

In April, Western countries accused Syria of being behind an alleged chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma.
