UNSC Envoys Call on Antonio Guterres to Investigate Idlib Airstrikes

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces, backed by Russian Federation, began an offensive on the last major insurgent stronghold three months ago that the United Nations says has killed at least 450 civilians and displaced more than 440,000 people, according to Reuters.

At least 14 UN-supported healthcare facilities "have been damaged or destroyed in northwest Syria since the end of April", the countries told Guterres in their letter, which was seen by Reuters.

At least 17 villages have been "completely destroyed" as the regime of Bashar al-Assad and its principal global ally, Russia, press a military offensive on northwestern Syria's Idlib province, the United Nations said Tuesday, reports Anadolu Agency.

Speaking to reporters after briefing the Security Council for the seventh time since the Idlib offensive began, United Nations aid chief Mark Lowcock questioned whether the coordinates had been used to target healthcare facilities.

The petition was signed by Britain, France, the United States, Kuwait, Peru, Poland, Belgium, Dominican Republic, Germany, and Indonesia.

"If the Russian-Syrian alliance has used those coordinates to target hospitals, that would be a war crime, and those responsible should be held accountable for their gruesome actions", he added.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

Susannah Sirkin, policy director at Physicians for Human Rights, told the council that since Syria launched its offensive the organization had received reports of 46 attacks on health care facilities.

"These are civilian objects, and it seems highly unlikely, given the persistent pattern of such attacks, that they are all being hit by accident", Bachelet said.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million others displaced during the course of Syria's more than eight-year conflict.

Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million others displaced, according to United Nations officials.

Over the past three months, the Syrian government offensive in Idlib has forced hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes or temporary shelters in northwestern Syria and seek refuge near the border with Turkey. The most powerful is the jihadist Tahrir al-Sham, the latest incarnation of the former Nusra Front which was part of al Qaeda until 2016.

The de-escalation zone is now inhabited by about 4 million civilians, including hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the regime forces from their cities and towns throughout the war-weary country over recent years.
