ANKARA (Reuters) - An increased offensive in Syria's rebel-held Idlib province will spark a new migration wave, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Friday, calling on Russia and Iran to warn Syrian authorities over attacks.

Speaking to reporters after Friday prayers, Yildirim also said the attacks would only damage a peace process in Syria. Rebels this week launched a counter attack against Syrian government forces and their allies in Idlib. [nL8N1P65EN]
