US Official: Russia Unlikely to Support Full-Scale Offensive on Syria’s Idlib


“Our conversations with the Russians have not indicated that the Russians are ready to support a full-scale offensive into Idlib,” U.S. Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey told reporters. “They tell us that this is only a limited set of military operations against specific terrorists.”

Jeffrey, who was in New York for a closed-door U.N. Security Council meeting on the political situation in Syria, said Washington’s main concern is not the terrorists, but the civilians who are affected by the violence.
