Turkey says attacks on Syria's Idlib must stop, calls for ceasefire - NTV

ANKARA (Reuters) - Air and ground attacks on Syria’s Idlib must stop and a ceasefire must be established in the area, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar was reported as saying by broadcaster NTV on Monday.

Last week, the presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia failed to agree on a ceasefire that would forestall a Syrian government offensive in the rebel-held Idlib province. The United Nations fears an offensive could cause a humanitarian catastrophe involving tens of thousands of civilians.
