UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appealed to Russia and Turkey on Tuesday, June 18th "to stabilise the situation without delay" in northwest Syria, Reuters has reported.

"I am deeply concerned about the escalation of the fighting in Idlib, and the situation is especially dangerous given the involvement of an increased number of actors," he told reporters. "Even in the fight against terrorism there needs to be full compliance with international human rights and humanitarian law."
