ATHENS - The top US military officer warned on Tuesday that a major Syrian military assault on the rebel-held enclave of Idlib would lead to a humanitarian catastrophe and instead recommended more narrowly tailored operations against militants there.

"If major military operations take place we can expect humanitarian catastrophe and I think we would all want to see that be avoided," Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters during a trip to Athens.
