UN chief asks Russia, Turkey to ‘stabilize’ Syria’s embattled Idlib

UN chief Antonio Guterres called on Russia and Turkey Tuesday to “stabilize the situation” in the Syrian province of Idlib, rocked by intense fighting that the UN body warned is creating a humanitarian disaster.

“I am deeply concerned about the escalation of the fighting in Idlib and the situation is especially dangerous given the involvement of an increased number of actors. Yet again civilians are paying a horrific price,” Guterres told reporters. His comments came ahead of a UN Security Council session on Tuesday to discuss the situation.

The world is facing “a humanitarian disaster unfolding before our eyes,” Mark Lowcock, the UN’s humanitarian chief, told the council.

Parts of Aleppo, Hama and Idlib—the last bastion of jihadist forces in Syria—are supposed to be protected from a massive regime offensive by a buffer zone deal that Russia and Turkey signed in September.
