BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is demanding answers regarding the failed militant withdrawal from the designated buffer zone in northwest Syria, an officer told Al-Masdar News this morning.

Speaking to Al-Masdar from the large town of Mhardeh, the officer said that the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command is in talks with the Russian military about the next steps to take in the Idlib, Aleppo, Latakia, and Hama provinces.

The officer said that the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command is now awaiting Turkey’s response to the Russian military’s questions regarding the failed militant withdrawal.

He would add that the Syrian Arab Army units in northwest Syria have been on high alert, but they will not likely launch any attack in the next few weeks because they redeployed several divisions to southern Syria.

Several Syrian Army units, including the elite 4th Armored Division and the 9th Division’s Shock Troops, were recently deployed to the Sweida Governorate, where they are now leading the charge to end the Islamic State’s presence inside the province.

If the Russian and Syrian leaders are empty headed enough to believe the turks, they deserve to lose this war.

Nobody believes Erdogan. But letting him doing his taqiyya for a while is necessary to justify action before the international community…
Another problem : Turkish army is near as powerful as Israel…

I think the Turkish military is far more powerful than the Israeli military. The IDF advantage is they believe they are fighting for their lives whereas the Turkish military is cannon fodder and will run as soon as they take effective incoming fire.

They will run means the Turks are less dedicated and powerful than IDF.
