BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to establish a demilitarized zone in Idlib after their short meeting in the Russian port-city of Sochi.

The Russian and Turkish leader agreed that they will have a demilitarized zone that separates the Syrian government forces and rebels inside of Idlib; however, they did not specify the exact location of this dmz.

This agreement comes just days after the Turkish military began moving their troops from the Hatay Province to Syria’s Idlib Governorate.

Both leaders did not mention the Hama, Latakia, and Aleppo governorates, where there is still a considerable number of jihadist rebels still active.

More details to come…

I don’t like this. This is done to protect the terrorist and keep Turkey’s foot in Syria. Ideally all militants, terrorists and Turkish troops should be purged out of Syria.

The Turks will keep their foot in Syria anyway. That’s an unfortunate but obvious fact. The question is just how much territory or influence they will steal. We will see what comes out of this.

Big win for Erdogan and huge defeat for Assad and Putin! After months of preparations for the offensive SAA can pack and leave. Syria will be left with Jihadi infested Idlibstan where terrorists can live and prosper (and grow stronger). Also it will be very hard to kick Turkey out of Syria when it “grows roots inside”…
