38,500 flee hostilities in Syria’s Idlib in two weeks: UN

Violence in northwest Syria has displaced more than 38,500 people in less than two weeks amid increasing hostilities and assault on the Idlib province, the U.N. said Thursday.

The U.N., which has warned a full-fledged assault on Idlib could create the century's "worst humanitarian catastrophe," has created a plan to help up to 900,000 people who could flee the onslaught.

During the first 12 days of September, "available information indicates that a sharp increase in hostilities and fears of further escalation has led to the displacement of over 38,500 people," the U.N. humanitarian agency (OCHA) said."
