BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 P.M.) – The deadline for the jihadist rebels to withdraw from the Idlib buffer zone has expired and the militants are still inside this designated de-escalation area.
According to the Russian Reconciliation Center, the jihadist rebels inside the Idlib buffer zone have continued their attacks against the government forces.
While the Russian Reconciliation Center did not specify where the attacks took place, pro-government activists in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate have reported some militant activity within this part of the Idlib buffer zone.
The Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has already issued a stern warning to the jihadist rebels in Idlib about not abiding by the Idlib agreement.
Muallem said this afternoon that the Syrian Armed Forces are already deployed near the front-lines and prepared for any action.
