US Daily Slams 'Muted Reaction' To Idlib Offensive

Idlib offensive does not distinguish between ‘terrorists’ and more than three million civilians, says Washington Post.

The Washington Post's editorial board on Wednesday condemned an ongoing offensive by the Bashar al-Assad regime and Russia in the Syrian province of Idlib.
In an article, the board said Western governments "have been exhausted by the seemingly endless civil war in Syria."
"Many are distracted by polarizing domestic political conflicts. The result is a tragically muted reaction as the Syrian war approaches a horrific climax in the northern province of Idlib," it wrote.
The daily accused Russia and the Syrian regime of deliberately prompting an exodus by relentlessly bombing civilian targets in Idlib.
The board said the offensive does not distinguish between "terrorists" and the more than three million civilians in the province.
It also said Turkey is "the only defender of these desperate people" and the country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to push back Assad's forces from the area.
It stated that the Assad regime is determined to recapture all of Idlib.
"And the relentless pattern of the Syrian war has been unfulfilled Russian promises to control Damascus," it added.
The board also urged the U.S. and European countries to pressure Russian President Vladimir Putin to curtail the offensive and allow humanitarian aid into Idlib.
"They should make clear to Moscow that it will pay a substantial price — in the form of new sanctions and a reversal of European moves toward better relations — if the carnage does not cease," it wrote.
More than 1,300 civilians have been killed in the Idlib de-escalation zone despite a deal reached by Ankara and Moscow in September 2018.
Over a million Syrians have moved near the Turkish border following intense attacks.
Since the bloody civil war in Syria in 2011, Turkey has taken in over 3.6 million Syrians who fled their country, making it the world's top refugee-hosting country. -
