BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) have been placed on high alert in the Idlib province after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began moving their troops to the front-lines near the demilitarized zone, the Syria-based Al-Watan newspaper reported.
According to Al-Watan, the National Liberation Front made the decision to ready their troops for war after reports of Syrian Army personnel moving towards their lines.
The daily went on to say that Naji al-Musfata, the spokesman for the NLF, has declared his forces’ full preparedness for an imminent attack on the army.
Al-Watan quoted sources, affiliated to Ahrar al-Sham, as disclosing that the Turkey-backed militants are approaching other terrorist groups, including Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) and Horas al-Deen to form a coalition against the army.
On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces were reportedly placed on high alert near the Abu Dhuhour Airport and ordered to remain at the front-lines as a new operation was set to begin.
