State-run Al-Ikhbariya TV said the government was retaliating against overnight shelling from rebel-held areas on a government-held town in Hama province, south of Idlib. Idlib is the last redoubt of terrorist groups including Jabhat al-Nusra and some offshoots of Al Qaeda. We will host 90,000 people in total. Some of them have even changed home [already] more than twice, so they are all prepared for immediate evacuation in case of a military operation.

More than three million people have fled to Idlib and as many as 70,000 opposition fighters are dug in there.

"People are trying to settle wherever they can in the hope of being protected from the air strikes".

"When they did not comply, the shooting started on the auto", Abdel Rahman said.

"They hit with four rockets so we escaped with our flock", he said.

Erdogan also said the Syrian people could not be left to the mercy of the Bashar al-Assad regime.

He said: "Our top line message is there needs to be ways of dealing with this problem that doesn't turn the next few months in Idlib into the worst humanitarian catastrophe, with the biggest loss of life of the 21st century".

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported 68 air raids and 19 barrel bombs dropped Saturday on several of towns and villages in southwestern Idlib and Hama province.

"Black criticized the American diplomats who do not stop threatening people with war, killing and imposing sanctions instead of looking for common ground for cooperation between nations and peoples", Syrian state media added.

Christy Delafield of Mercy Corps, one of the largest organizations delivering aid in Syria, said it has been hard for aid workers and communities to keep up with the displacement.

United Nations officials warned more than 30,000 people have already been forced to flee the region.

But he called on the global community to offer more support for the expected increase in refugees.

"We very actively preparing for the possibility that civilians move in huge numbers in multiple directions", Lowcock said.

Turkey fears a full-scale operation by Russian Federation and Syria will create a new wave of massive refugee influx into the country already hosting over three million Syrians.

Idlib is the last rebel stronghold - if the regime wins here it will have effectively won the Syrian war and defeated the revolution.

Turkish forces and Turkish-backed opposition fighters now control an area between Afrin and Jarabulus where Ankara had hoped to resettle the millions of refugees.

In the Commons, the United Kingdom foreign office minister Alistair Burt refused to give an undertaking that MPs will be given a vote if the United Kingdom sees a need to join the U.S. in mounting reprisal raids for what it adjudges to have been a chemical attack by the Syrian government.

At a Tehran summit this week with Rouhani and Putin, Erdogan asked the duo three times for a ceasefire in Idlib where his army backs the rebel forces dominated by al-Qaida's local branch Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), formerly Jabhat al-Nusra.

The recapture of the province is seen by Russian Federation and Iran as a vital objective in stamping out the rebellion against the Syrian leader. Turkey says it is still possible HTS can be persuaded to dissolve, but this is unlikely.
