UN aid chief fears northwest Syria ‘humanitarian nightmare’

UNITED NATIONS, The U.N. humanitarian chief says his worst fears that a full-scale military onslaught in northwestern Syria would "unleash a humanitarian nightmare unlike any we have seen" in Syria are now coming true, AP reported.

Mark Lowcock told a Security Council meeting Friday that escalating violence in the last three weeks in the de-escalation zone in rebel-held Idlib, where about 3 million people live, killed up to 160 people, displaced at least 180,000 and left millions "crammed into an ever smaller area."
