BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The U.S. views the upcoming Syrian Arab Army (SAA) offensive in the Idlib Governorate as an ‘escalation,’ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted on Friday.
“The U.S sees this as an escalation of an already dangerous conflict,” Pompeo tweeted.
“The 3 million Syrians, who have already been forced out of their homes and are now in Idlib, will suffer from this aggression. Not good. The world is watching,” he added.
Pompeo also criticized his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, for defending the upcoming Syrian Arab Army offensive in the Idlib Governorate.
