BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The militant forces in the Idlib Governorate have once again cutoff the strategic M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway), blocking both the Russian and Turkish troops from conducting their agreed upon patrols.

According to reports from the Idlib Governorate, the militant factions quickly moved to cutoff the M-4 Highway after it was cleared of the rubble the day before.

The M-4 Highway was supposed to be reopened for the joint Russian-Turkish patrols along this imperative roadway; however, the militant forces have expressed their dissatisfaction with the Moscow agreement.

This move by the militant factions comes just a day after the Turkish military was ambushed along the M-4 Highway; this resulted in the death of two soldiers.

While Turkey claimed their soldiers were killed by “radical groups”, no one claimed responsibility for the attack.

A few well timed air strikes will thin them out a lot.😉

Has anybody been surprised about this ? I do not think so.
