Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned that dropping bombs and missiles on Syria's last rebel-held province of Idlib could cause a "massacre," in remarks published Wednesday."God forbid, a serious massacre could take place if there is a rain of missiles there," Erdogan told journalists on his plane after an official visit to the Central Asian state of Kyrgystan, Hurriyet daily reported.His comments come as Syrian troops mass near the northwestern region of Idlib for a major assault that is raising fears of a humanitarian catastrophe on a scale not yet seen in the seven-year-old conflict.Russia, an ally of President Bashar Assad's regime, Tuesday resumed air strikes on Idlib after a 22-day pause.Erdogan as well as the presidents of Iran and Russia will meet Friday in Tehran for a summit expected to focus on Idlib.
