Afrin and Idlib are connected by land so it doesnt really change anything if they’re sent here or there .

Ahrar al-Sham y Jaysh al-Islam son los principales grupos terroristas apoyados por Turquía y Arabia Saudita, como vemos el Terrorista Erdogan movió sus fichas hacia el norte para colonizar Afrin.
Al parecer Erdogan sigue imponiéndose sobre sobre Rusia e Irán, verguenza para estos dos países, pensaba que ayudaban al gobierno Sirio y en la práctica no es así.

YPG/YPJ are traitors

Translating: the big-mouth YPG/YPJ is running like headless chickens trying to escape and save their worthless skin.
The traitors in their arrogance lost a large part of Syria to the turks.

That’s called ethnic cleansing. Push the Kurds away, replace them with jihadis (grateful to Turkey for saving their heads) and… Les jeux sont faits. I hope the Syrian government now fully understands the size of its error letting Turkey turning Afrin into its protectorate. As far as Russia is concerned they now have a big favour to claim back from Erdogan who now has part of the border secured with those headchoppers he likes so much. Who loses? Syria.
