Over 500,000 Syrians Flee Deadly Regime Offensive

More than half a million people have been displaced in Syria’s last rebel stronghold by a deadly regime offensive that has led Turkey to intervene in the fighting and has raised tensions between neighbouring regions.

The violence has put Idlib’s population of 3 million at risk of what aid agencies say could be Syria’s worst humanitarian crisis yet.

Turkey, already home to around 4 million refugees, is unwilling to open its border to more.

The exodus, coinciding with a biting winter, is one of the largest since the start of the conflict in 2011.

Veteran humanitarian NGO workers are at a loss about how to handle this unprecedented crisis.
