UN Security Council To Discuss Syria's Idlib Tomorrow

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that the UN Security Council will hold a meeting tomorrow on the situation in Syria's Idlib province.

UN warning Syria's government not to use chemical weapons ahead of a widely expected military offensive there.

Russian and Syrian planes pounded areas on the western edge of Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold, according to the Syrian observatory for human rights and a rebel source. A Syrian government minister also said the siege of Idlib would probably be resolved by force.

The world's chemical weapons watchdog has documented systematic use of banned munitions in Syria's civil war, including nerve agent sarin and sulfur mustard gas. But the body, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, has not assigned blame for the attacks.
