BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – The Turkish military has fully blocked the Syrian Arab Army’s path to Idlib after they established several observation posts around the province.

According to a recent report from the Astana Peace Conference, Turkey and Russia have agreed to allow the latter to construct an observation point around the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham held areas in Jisr Al-Shughour and the Al-Ghaab Plain.

Not long after the agreement, the Turkish military not only visited these areas, but also, established new observation points to block the Syrian Army’s future offensives.

In early April, a preliminary agreement was put in place that would allow the Syrian Army and Russian military to attack and fully capture Jisr Al-Shughour, northeast Latakia, the Al-Ghaab Plain.

However, Turkey would later renege on this deal, as the Syrian and Russian forces were amassing troops in northern Latakia for the upcoming assault.

Falso, Turquía tiene su propio grupo terrorista y presta apoyo a otros grupos de manera indirecta, los puntos establecidos es para acusar al gobierno Sirio de que viola los acuerdos.
Erdogan es enemigo de Siria y quiere conquistar mas territorios, pertenece a la hermandad musulmana

Well, Syria-Hezbolah-Iran-Russia forces have to cross these Turkey lines, that is all, no problem. At least, Russia had negotiated this Syria north land for Turkey.

If the ‘west’ wants Turkey to give them back their ‘mercenary head-choppers’, then they’ll be paying handsomely! And will the ‘head-choppers’ want the same experience again? Doubtful! Go Syria!

Actually this article is a little bit exaggerated. Those are small garrisons without any heavy equipment. SAA would run them over with no problems if they want that. Those observation points cannot block anything…

La estrategia del gobierno Sirio debe ser cerrar la frontera con Turquía y encerrar a todos los terroristas dentro de Siria. Mientras exista comunicación con Turquía seguirá ingresando armas y mas mercenarios.

A lot of surrendered terrorist groups have been moved to Idlib from various places. Many of these groups have already started regrouping with bigger groups that have funding & heavy weapons. Turki’s main fear is if SAA & Russians start attacking the various groups inside Idlib there are a lot of chances that these mercenaries will escape into Turki which shares a common border with Syria near Idlib. Turki fears such a scenario and knows what these head choppers are capable of. It does not want these killers entering into its own territory as it fears Uncle SAM might also… Read more »
