BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham are strengthening their positions around the Idlib Governorate in preparation for an operation against the Turkish-backed militants, Al-Watan reported on Monday. 

According to the Al-Watan report, the jihadists are exploiting the Turkish military operation in northern Syria to expand its control over the Idlib Governorate. 

In previous Turkish Army-backed operations in northern Syria (i.e. Afrin 2018), the jihadist rebels have exploited these offensives to expand their control over the countrysides of Aleppo, Idlib, and Hama.

This report by Al-Watan is especially important given that Turkey has agreed to dissolve the jihadist groups in the Idlib Governorate; this includes Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, who is currently in control of most of the Idlib Governorate.

The jihadist groups have not agreed to any ceasefire with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); furthermore, the latter will not halt their operations until all of these extremist factions are dissolved.

El gobierno Ruso es un estúpido o simplemente es cómplice del gobierno Turco, todo el mundo sabe que Erdogan apoya al terrorismo en Siria y sus prácticas lo han demostrado, con la acción de invasión justo en el momento cuando el ejercito Sirio avanzaba en recuperar territorios se le ocurre invadir, esa práctica lo demuestra que siempre apoyará al terrorismo.
