Turkey's Erdogan says attack on Idlib would cause humanitarian crisis

Tue, Sep. 11, 2018
ANKARA – 11 September 2018: A Syrian government offensive in Idlib would cause humanitarian and security risks for Turkey, Europe and beyond, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Erdogan also called on the international community to take action on Idlib, the last rebel enclave in Syria, and warned that "the entire world stands to pay the price" otherwise.

Erdogan, who met with his Russian and Iranian counterparts at a summit in Tehran last week, also said Russia and Iran had a responsibility to stop the humanitarian disaster in Idlib.
