The renewed strikes came a day after the leaders of rebel backer Turkey and regime allies Russian Federation and Iran failed at the summit in Tehran to agree on how to stave off a threatened offensive on the northwestern province of Idlib.
On Saturday, the United States' top general said he and Trump have "routine dialogue" about possible military consequences if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons in Idlib.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that a Syrian government offensive in the country's northern region of Idlib would cause humanitarian and security risks for Turkey, Europe and beyond. "Don't let that happen!"

Kurdish forces control most of Qamishli, but regime fighters and allied militiamen hold part of the city and its airport.
