Russian Federation is due to brief the United Nations Security Council later Tuesday about the results of the Tehran summit it held with Iran and Turkey on the fate of Syria's Idlib province.

Airstrikes and bombings would trigger a "massive wave of refugees and tremendous security risks for Turkey, the rest of Europe and beyond", he warned.

More than 30,000 people have been displaced within rebel-held northwest Syria due to bombardment by government and allied forces which began last week, a United Nations official said on Monday.

De Mistura will meet on Monday and Tuesday with the guarantor countries of Astana process - Turkey, Russia, and Iran. Besides, there is also a list containing the names of civil activists. The Syrian Network for Human Rights, known for its more conservative estimates, has verified over 6,000 civilian deaths caused by Moscow.

The powerful allegations come at a time when President Donald Trump and officials in his administration continue to warn Assad of potential consequences for using chemical weapons or otherwise attacking forces openly at war with his regime.

Idlib residents hope Turkey's presence in the province might prevent a major assault by regime forces and Ankara's relationship with Iran and Russian Federation could lead to a new ceasefire.

Tahrir al-Sham is the number one terrorist group of the Idlib operation on Turkey's border, according to Russian Federation and Syria.

Real chemicals would be used to make the footage appear more authentic and also to provide samples of allegedly contaminated soil from the scene, the ministry said. "Our fear as humanitarians is the worst may be ahead of us", said Laerke reading from the statement.

"Turkey has a plan, Madam President, in Idlib and it does involve reaching an agreement with the Syrian opposition whereby the regime refrains from attacking them while they combat terrorism", she said referring to Nikki Haley, the U.S.'s United Nations envoy and council president.

Idlib hosts several militant groups backed by Turkey and other foreign parties - especially Western states, Israel and their regional allies. The Turkish army has also sent troops into Syrian rebel-held territory further east, in an area north of Aleppo city.
