"Now talks are ongoing between our soldiers, intelligence agencies and foreign ministries about what kind of steps could be taken", he said in Ankara late on Monday.

The strikes came just hours after US President Donald Trump issued a warning to his Syrian counterpart Bashar Al Assad not to "recklessly attack" the last rebel holdout in the country.

Pope Francis on Sunday, September 2, warned of a "human catastrophe" in the Syria's Idlib province, the last major rebel bastion which is being shelled by government forces.

The base, set up in 2016 near the borders with Iraq and Jordan, was also used for the training of so-called "vetted opposition" to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

Russian Federation accuses rebels in Idlib of attacking Hmeimim with weaponised drones and insists jihadist groups in the province must be eliminated.

There are about 3 million people in Idlib and the United Nations has said it is anxious about the potential humanitarian toll that may come with a Syrian military campaign there.

"And if it succeeds we will have hundreds of thousands of lives spared".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says efforts are underway to drive terrorists out from the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib with the least humanitarian cost. "Don't let that happen!"

The Assad regime and its Russian allies have held off a full-scale attack for now, at least pending a summit on Friday between President Putin, President Rouhani of Iran and President Erdogan of Turkey, who has supported the rebels.

"Frankly speaking, I don't think there's anything the United States can do about it".

Overnight Saturday, a string of explosions at a military airport near the Syrian capital reportedly killed two regime fighters and injured 11 others.

He said the problem of terrorists in Idlib "needs to be dealt with" and that the Syrian military is preparing to do that, though he didn't indicate specifically how or when.

Assad's forces, backed by military support from Russian Federation and Iran, have recaptured major cities in recent years, often involving agreements with both opposition fighters and civilians that allowed them to flee to Idlib.

"Where Syria and its Russian and Iranian allies see a chance to crush the remaining opposition, Western leaders warn of a humanitarian calamity in Idlib, where an estimated three million civilians live", the New York Times reported.
