A lady holds a baby while her return to Syria

A Syrian holds a baby as she waits with others to return to Syria, on February 8, 2016 at the Turkish Oncupinar border gate near Kilis, southern-central Turkey. Thousands of Syrians were braving cold and rain at the Turkish border after fleeing a Russian-backed regime offensive on Aleppo that threatens a fresh humanitarian disaster in the country’s second city. Around 40,000 civilians have fled their homes over the regime offensive, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor. / AFP
