I can only assume the significance is that these deaths are down to the Syrian Government and Russia? But it happened in Raqqa as well ........ and those deaths were the responsibility of coalition forces!

Unfortunately in modern warfare civilians are a thousand times more likely to die than the military who are killing them.

...i am repeating news already discussed, but worthwhile noting, in any case.

https://www.france24.com/en/20190731-un ... yria-idlib

The U.N. humanitarian chief urged the Security Council on Tuesday to take action to end the "bloody onslaught" in Syria's last opposition-held stronghold, warning that continued violence could create the worst humanitarian disaster of the 21st century.

An exasperated Mark Lowcock told council members they have ignored previous pleas to stop the bombing and shelling in Idlib province by Syrian and Russian warplanes and "done nothing for 90 days as the carnage continues in front of your eyes."

"Are you again going to shrug your shoulders ... or are you going to listen to the children of Idlib, and do something about it?" he asked.

The US is about to deploy 60k troops to Syria.

The US is allegedly moving tens of thousands of truckloads and plane loads of weapons and equipment too, which will be used to create an “occupation corridor” in the country.

Says a Turkish general.

He also goes on to say that the threats and risks are increasing with every passing day. An urgent intervention in Syria's South east must proceed so Turkey can draw the borders of its own “safe zone”.

Did any body ask them to interfere? :x ...... they did that in 2014 and that is why this conflict has dragged on for so long. Isn't there some sort of UN/International law that prevents this sort of aggression by one foreign State on another? :evil:

60,000 troops is quite a lot. You could go as far as saying it's a pretty big mobilisation. Certainly not something you could do quietly in the dead of night, which would escape the attention of the press. Currently though, apart from this article which is by a retired Turkish "genreal" (sic), there doesn't seem to be anything else to support the story.

Perhaps others might have better luck later. What are the "independent" sites saying?

It’s a possibility that this is bs but turkey is mobilizing it’s military on the border, looking for either an excuse or an approval from a greater power to occupy a part of Syria.

This is a land grab and another war crime in the making....
