Turkish president says helicopter downed in northern Syria

Syrian military responds to Israeli strike near Damascus – state media

A total of 400,000 people in the region have been largely cut off from humanitarian aid since 2013.

"If a Russian plane was downed, revenge should not be on civilians and children", Saleh said. "The humanitarian situation is appalling, and [it] is worsening every day".

Last summer, the coalition shot down Iranian-made armed drones and aircraft affiliated with the Syrian government in southern Syria, after they came dangerously close to U.S-backed forces and advisers.

Since the start of the conflict, the Israeli Air Force has repeatedly attacked targets inside Syria.

The official said no United States troops had been killed or wounded in the attack, which was carried out by about 500 fighters, but one Syrian fighter allied with the coalition was wounded. A fourth consecutive day of regime bombing raids on Eastern Ghouta, on the outskirts of the capital Damascus, killed more than 20 civilians, according to local reports.

Diplomacy is making no progress toward ending a war now approaching its eighth year, having killed hundreds of thousands of people and forced half the pre-war Syrian population of 23 million from their homes, with millions forced out as refugees. At least eight residents remained missing when the search was suspended at nightfall, one rescuer said.

His colleagues in the northern province of Idlib had treated more than a dozen cases of civilians falling ill due to a suspected chlorine attack on the city of Saraqeb.

"The centre is now out of service", said Beit Sawa, a doctor at Medical Centre.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 70 people were wounded Monday and the number of casualties was likely to climb as rescue operations got underway.

Trump decides not to release the Schiff memo
Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., a former prosecutor and member of the House intelligence panel who helped advise staff on the GOP memo . The White House informed this on Friday and said the Democratic memo contained several classified passages.

In Idlib, more than 300,000 people have fled ongoing fighting towards major population centres and the Turkish border since mid-December a year ago.

But in Eastern Ghouta, 78 people would be counted among the dead before the night was over on Tuesday, another 36 perished on Wednesday and at least 38 on Thursday, according to activists.

"We hope that this barbaric campaign against us will stop", he said.

Nebenzia said it was also "regrettable" that the Security Council wouldn't support a statement that Russian Federation sought Wednesday following an attack in Damascus that damaged its trade mission.

Almost 200 people have died in four days of intense bombardment in the area, whose 400,000 residents have been besieged since 2013.

Aid groups had previously condemned the Syrian government's targeting of medical facilities and said at least 10 hospitals had been put out of commission by air raids since December of past year.

The U.S. said Russian Federation must use its influence over Bashar al-Assad's forces to ensure Syria immediately allows United Nations aid to reach vulnerable civilians. Mr. Pinheiro was referring to the truce deal that had been negotiated by the Kremlin for the territory held by the rebels who have since failed to stop fighting.

Syria's multisided war has drawn in armies and insurgents from around the world, aggravating a conflict that began in 2011 as an uprising against Assad.
