Syria violence spikes as aid groups warn of disasterA surge in violence Saturday left 12 civilians dead in Syria’s last major opposition bastion as aid groups warned of a humanitarian catastrophe if cross-border aid stops reaching the region. Heightened regime and Russian bombardment on the northwestern province of Idlib since December 16 has already forced tens of thousands of vulnerable people to flee their homes, according to the United Nations. The jihadist-dominated Idlib region hosts some three million people including many displaced by years of violence in other parts of Syria.
