BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels in northern Syria have vowed to start a new battle against the Syrian Army in retaliation for the latter’s Daraa offensive.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham – alongside the jihadist rebel factions of Hurras Al-Deen, Ansar Al-Deen, Ansarallah, and the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP) – released a statement on Saturday that vowed to start a new battle and make the Syrian Army pay a heavy price for the Daraa offensive.

Furthermore, the jihadist groups plan on releasing a video soon to expand on this recent threat.

The jihadist rebels issued a similar statement during the Syrian Arab Army’s East Ghouta offensive; however, they did not launch any major operation.

This threat could just be an attempt by the jihadist rebels to propagate their commitment to their allies in southern Syria, but the reality is that they do not really have many options to open a new front against the Syrian Army.

Nestor : Erdogan might be a big problem : he has a really serious army. Better not overlook this… SAA will have to ally with YPG for sure. Israel gets no suffering from this : if you think they want a full neighbouring state under the control of looneys even more bonkers than Hamas, you’re really deluded. In fact, it made their day that Putin intervened : they were seriously considering intervening to hammer the roaches at the beginning of 2015. Why d’you think their relations with USA reached an all time low during the Obongo admin? The problem would… Read more »

First, when the Syrian army approaches the Turkish army within the Syrian territory, what do you think will happen – the conflict between the two armies?
Secondly, the Syrian army, when heading north, will already have a prepared political situation served by Russia. Whoever doubts about the ability of Russia is free to look at the September 2015 situation and compare it with the current situation.
