No disagreements with Russian Federation over Syria operation: Turkish FM

  • Why US backs separatist entities in northern Syria

The UN's International Commission of Inquiry on Syria condemned the attacks, which cause collateral damage among the very people the government of Syria swore to protect.

The president of Syria Bashar-al-Assad in conjunction with the Russian Airforce and militias backed by Iran are pursuing military operations against the rebels in the last significant redoubts of the regions that have been in control of Assad's opponents in the western side of the country.

The U.K. -based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that more than 70 people were killed in Tuesday's attacks.

Moaz al-Shami, an anti-government activist from the Idlib town of Saraqeb, said in an interview last week that he no longer knew why he risked his life to videotape attacks.

Though he appears to have survived the insurgency, his forces continue to bomb and besiege opposition pockets across Syria, including in Eastern Ghouta and Idlib.

"If a Russian plane was downed, revenge should not be on civilians and children", Saleh said.

The deal to ease violence in certain areas, brokered by Russian Federation with Turkey and Iran - as well as the rout of the Islamic State from most of its territory past year - may have given people the false impression that the Syrian war was winding down, Mr. Moumtzis said.

He described the government's siege and indiscriminate bombardment of Eastern Ghouta as "international crimes".

The United Nations is calling for an immediate cease-fire in Syria to allow for the delivery of life-saving aid to millions of civilians who are without food, medicine and other essential needs.

The UN mission in Damascus warned of "dire consequences" to the humanitarian crises in Syria, identifying seven areas needing urgent relief.

These refugees, Ambassador Yuceer noted, are forced to leave Syria for many reasons among them, the repressive regime of Assad.

Medics in Idlib were also treating casualties from Tuesday - the bloodiest day in the conflict for several months, when 78 people were killed.

The appeal coincides with the collapse in recent weeks of a year-old Russian effort to tamp down the violence through "de-escalation zones", which had helped contribute to a perception that the war in Syria finally was winding down.

Large elements of the YPG or Syrian Democratic Union Party (PYD) make up the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the USA -backed confederation of Arab and Kurdish paramilitaries who flushed ISIS from its Syrian capital of Raqqa past year. The military said the soldier was killed late Monday by a mortar-and-rocket attack that also wounded five Turkish soldiers and a civilian military contractor.

In his press conference on Tuesday, Rouhani had wished that Turkey would stop the ongoing Turkish military operation in northern Syria, saying that it only increases tension in the war-torn country. The pilot reportedly killed himself with a grenade rather than be captured.

The US-led coalition battling the Islamic State group said Wednesday it had carried out defensive strikes in the eastern Deir Ezzor region against Syrian pro-regime forces.
