Jun 11, 2018 Read more: SFGate
GENEVA (AP) - The U.N. humanitarian agency's top official for Syria is expressing concern about recent airstrikes in rebel-held Idlib province, warning that "we may have not seen the worst of the crisis" in Syria even after 7 years of war. Panos Moumtzis of U.N. OCHA says military escalation could make Idlib's situation "much more complicated and brutal" than other conflict zones in Syria. He said Monday that 920,000 people were displaced within Syria between January and April, the highest number of any four-month span since the war began. OCHA is on "high alert" for possible further displacement among the estimated 2-1/2 million people in Idlib, adding "There is no place left to go" within Syria.
