1/ Turkey realizes that the only way to pressure Europe on escalation in Idlib is by allowing refugees to go to Europe. Today busses in Istanbul were picking up refugees to drop them off in Edirne, a Turkish town close to border crossings with Greece &Bulgaria. Vid via @OweisAk 

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province. The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. Don’t let that happen!

Hearing word that Russia, Syria and, to a lesser extent, Iran, are bombing the hell out of Idlib Province in Syria, and indiscriminately killing many innocent civilians. The World is watching this butchery. What is the purpose, what will it get you? STOP!

So many people conveniently forget that Turkey is a big trading partner of the United States, in fact they make the structural steel frame for our F-35 Fighter Jet. They have also been good to deal with, helping me to save many lives at Idlib Province, and returning, in very.....

Hospitals are overwhelmed with victims of a suspected chemical attack in Syria's Idlib province.
