ANKARA (Reuters) - Germany would consider boosting humanitarian assistance for Syrian refugees in countries neighbouring the Arab state in the case of an all-out government offensive in the northern region of Idlib, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday.

“Germany is ready to consider increasing its humanitarian commitment (to Syria) should multi-front battles take place,” Maas said after talks with his Turkish counterpart in Ankara.
