(TASS) Reports saying the militant coalition Tahrir al-Sham harbor plans for creating a new “Islamic State” are worrisome, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.

“We find worrisome the reports the Organization for the Liberation of the Levant [Tahrir al-Sham – TASS] harbors plans for declaring within a month the creation of another Islamic State in the south of Idlib Province and north of Hama Province, a second one after the caliphate in Raqqa,” Zakharova said.

“Such a territorial entity that is going to be established under the cover of the teaching of Islam, although we all understand perfectly well that such attempts have no bearing on real Islam at all, in reality would become a stronghold for those in Syria who profess an ideology of terror and violence,” Zakharova added.

A new HTS caliphate will be the next entity to attract international Jihadi tourism over the open Turkish border. And I doubt that Erdogan as Islamist will do anything in time. His declared aim is the creation of Turkish controlled “security zone” statelets anyway and this fits into the pattern.

Idlib es la zona dominado por mercenarios, es por donde ingresan suministros de guerra incluyendo mercenarios desde Turquía, los Rusos deben exigir a Turquía que refuerce su frontera y se retire del norte de Alepo.
