BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated this afternoon that the Russian-Turkish agreement on Idlib is currently being fulfilled.
“The Russian-Turkish agreement on Idlib is being fulfilled,” Lavrov said.
Lavrov continued that the withdrawal of all militants is a gradual process; however, they have already begun leaving the demilitarized zone.
The Russian Foreign Minister’s comments come just days after the Turkish regime announced that the rebel forces were removing their heavy weapons from the demilitarized zone.
Despite the claims regarding the withdrawal of these rebel groups, the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) continues to launch attacks against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) from this demilitarized zone.
