BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed Free Idlib Police have announced this afternoon that they will be dissolving their forces and handing over their equipment to the jihadist rebels.

According to the group’s media wing, they will be handing over their headquarters and bases to the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham-led “Salvation Government”.

Furthermore, the Free Idlib Police will be transferring all of their forces from the Jabal Shashabo and Al-Ghaab Plain regions of southwest Idlib to the Afrin region of northwestern Aleppo.

As a result of this disbandment, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is now the “undisputed administrator” of the Idlib province.

With Nusra “in charge”, now SAA will have free hand to retake the full Idlib province…

@Daeshbags-Sux, hope that this is the plan now and that no outside county interferes for “humanitarian” reasons.

What a wonderful Putin-Erdogan agreement for the terrorists and Turkey. If Russia think that they will be able to keep their airbasis in Syria safe against terrorists in Idlib because of its techonology, I do not think this will be true for long time since USA-Turkey support to terrorists will be constant.

Forces are being gathered for SDF to kill. Typical development for jihadis. From freedom fighters to jihadis to turkush paid mercenaries and now to fodder for the kurds, waiting to be killed. They are dead man walking. The cowards were too gutless to defend their civilians, the primary obligation of any police force.

Here goes the money countries like the UK has donated to the Free police project finally completely down the drain. They had bee warned that the only support Jihadi in the end – they would not listen.
