Damascus: The Syrian government and Russia are carrying out crushing attacks in the Aleppo province along with Idlib. The Syria-Russia campaign has been ongoing for almost two and a half months which the United Nations (UN) claimed has displaced nearly 800,000 people. Meanwhile, the Syrian rebels have claimed to have shot down two military helicopters of the Syrian government.
Terrorist organisations fighting against the Assad government in Syria, have bases in Idlib. Turkey is assisting the groups and is believed to have even deployed military in the region for the purpose. However, Idlib and Aleppo are considered as the decisive phase for the Assad government and Russia, which supports the government. The Assad government and Russia have thus undertaken a massive campaign to take over the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo from December.
The Syrian and Russian campaign has claimed the lives of hundreds of terrorists while also taking control of a significant land area. Nevertheless, the Syrian people appear to have borne a considerable brunt as a result of the conflict. More than 800,000 people were forced to displace because of the Syria-Russia campaign against Turkey-backed terrorist groups.
The United Nations has informed that more than 100,000 people had to displace in the last four days. The migration has once again placed Syria on the brink of a humanitarian crisis, the United Nations warned. The situation has caused severe shortages of food, medicines and other life essentials as also challenges in delivering aid to the region.
Syrian government and Russia are unwilling to provide details on their action in Idlib. Despite receiving severe criticism from across the globe, Syria and Russia have continued with their operation. Turkey has levelled serious allegations against Russia exposing sharp differences that have arisen between Turkey and Russia. Only a few days ago, Turkish President Recep Erdogan accused Russia of supporting the genocide carried out by the Syrian government in Idlib.
