Syria's ongoing humanitarian crisis continues to worsen


The humanitarian crisis in northwestern Syria is massive. Since December, an estimated 900,000 civilians have fled from their homes as Syrian government forces — with Russian military help — have continued their offensive in Idlib province. Now, Turkey's president says it's "only a matter of time" before Turkish troops launch an operation of their own. And, as COVID-19 spreads, online platforms like Airbnb are telling users and hosts to take cautionary measures. Also, the British government is planning to implement a points-based immigration system in 2021 that aims to only attract high skilled foreign workers.
