Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban Prime is backing a "No" vote is Sunday's referendum on accepting EU quotas for taking migrants and is almost certain to winHungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Saturday made a final plea to voters to reject the EU's troubled refugee quota plan, a day ahead of a referendum, warning that migrants threatened "Europe's safe way of life". In an opinion piece published on Saturday, Orban said Hungarians had "a duty" to help his government fight the failed "liberal methods" of the "Brussels elite". The deal in question -- spearheaded by Germany and approved by most EU countries last year -- is aimed at easing pressure on Greece and Italy, the main entry points into the EU for hundreds of thousands of refugees mostly fleeing war in Syria.

And prospects of a diplomatic resolution seem dim. (Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets via AP)BEIRUT (AP) — Russia warned the United States Saturday against carrying out any attacks on Syrian government forces, saying it would have repercussions across the Middle East as government forces captured a hill on the edge of the northern city of Aleppo under the cover of airstrikes.

A man walks on the rubble of damaged buildings after an airstrike on the rebel held al-Qaterji neighbourhood of AleppoBy Suleiman Al-Khalidi AMMAN (Reuters) - Russian war planes struck rebel-held areas north of Aleppo on Saturday as the army shelled the besieged old quarter in a major offensive, rebels and a monitoring group said. Russia was reported on Friday to be sending more warplanes to Syria to ramp up its air campaign as the United States said it had not yet given up on finding a diplomatic resolution. The latest strikes come 10 days into a Russian-backed Syrian government offensive to capture eastern Aleppo and crush the last urban stronghold of a revolt against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that began in 2011.
