Tens of Thousands of Syrians Flee Idlib for Turkish Border

HeadlineSep 12, 2018
H9 idlib

Tens of thousands of Syrians have fled the northwest province of Idlib—the last major rebel-held territory in Syria—amid fears the Syrian government will launch a full-out ground offensive. The United Nations has warned an offensive could lead to the worst loss of life in 21st century. This is Ali al-Mheymid, who fled from Idlib to the Turkish border.

Ali al-Mheymid: “What happened was destruction all over, burning, something you can’t describe. It was strange. Military planes, rocket propellers, everything, they did not differentiate between civilians and others. There are no bases, nothing. They want to target civilians.”
