Earlier Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gave what he called a "final warning" for Assad's forces to pull back from Idlib.

The multiple front offensive has triggered the biggest single wave of fleeing civilians in Syria's nine-year war, displacing almost 1 million people who have rushed toward the Turkish border and are sheltering in tents or sleeping rough in harsh winter weather.
