UN: Worse may still come in Syria, after airstrikes in Idlib
GENEVA, June 11, 2018 (MENA) - The UN humanitarian agency's top official for Syria is expressing concern about recent airstrikes in rebel-held Idlib province, warning that "we may have not seen the worst of the crisis" in Syria even after 7 years of war.
Panos Moumtzis of UN OCHA says military escalation could make Idlib's situation "much more complicated and brutal" than other conflict zones in Syria, according to the Daily Mail on Monday.
He said that 920,000 people were displaced within Syria between January and April, the highest number of any four-month span since the war began.
OCHA is on "high alert" for possible further displacement among the estimated 2-1/2 million people in Idlib, adding "There is no place left to go" within Syria.
