The council will meet at Russia´s request at 11:00 am (1500 GMT) to hear the briefing as Syrian forces, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, are preparing for an all-out military assault on the rebel-held province.

Idlib's health chief Munzer Al-Khalil said Saturday he feared "the most catastrophic crisis" in Syria's seven-year war.

"We've tried to convey the message in recent days that if there's a third use of chemical weapons, the response will be much stronger", Bolton said in remarks to the conservative Federalist Society in Washington.

Good evening. Thanks for joining us.

Ground troops from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a Kurdish-led force, began moving against Isil remnants in the province of Deir Ezzor, the coalition said.

In a Wall Street Journal article, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the global community to take action, and warned that "the entire world stands to pay the price" otherwise. And Turkey, the USA and France have threatened to retaliate against Syria, though the countries didn't say exactly what could lead to a military response.

The Syrian regime has repeatedly used chemical weapons.

Erdogan added that the U.S., which is focused on chemical attacks by the Assad regime, needed to "reject its arbitrary hierarchy of death". On Monday, Bolton called that statement "one of the most outrageous claims that I can think of" in the history of propaganda. The filming of staged chemical attack, allegedly carried out by the Syrian army against civilians, is already underway in the Idlib Governorate with the terrorists' assistance, the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria told reporters. Numerous civilians are there because they fled other parts of war-torn Syria. The Americans, Russians, Iranians, Turks, Israelis and more have all been involved in Syria's conflict to varying degrees, turning it into a proxy battleground for various global interests.

For his part, Black said he is "deeply concerned about achieving peace and stopping the slaughter in the Middle East" and anxious about America being drawn more deeply into the Syrian civil war.

Forecasters urged residents from SC to the mid-Atlantic to get ready - and not just for a direct blow against the coast. At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Helene was located near latitude 13.2 North, longitude 24.0 West.

"These are people who did not want to surrender or reconcile to the al-Assad Government and so they were corralled into Idlib Province."

Violence in northwest Syria has displaced more than 30,000 people this month alone, the United Nations said Monday, warning that a looming assault could create the century's "worst humanitarian catastrophe".

Moscow has also warned that terrorists are getting prepared to stage another chemical attack in Idlib to give U.S. enough evidence to attack. The U.S. still has 2,200 troops in northeast Syria.

However, the jihadists are expected to continue waging insurgent attacks in both Iraq and Syria.

Assad used chemical weapons again in the western Syrian town of Douma, nearly a year later. About 2,000 US troops are now operating in Syria, majority in the eastern region of the country.

A third USA strike likely would be more expansive than the first two, and Mr. Trump would again have to consider whether or not to hit targets like Russian air defenses in an effort to deliver a more punishing blow to Mr. Assad's military.

The report said Assad has approved the use of chlorine gas. The Administration has been deliberately vague on the topic.

Regime leader Bashar al Assad has now set his sights on Idlib, and his forces have stepped up bombardment of the densely populated province since the beginning of the month. "The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy", Trump tweeted earlier this week. "Don't let that happen!"

On Monday, airstrikes on Idlib and Hama provinces forced some people to flee their homes, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
