BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing for a large-scale operation in the southeastern countryside of the Idlib province, a new military report from northwest Syria read.

According to the report, the Syrian Army has closed the Morek Crossing after the jihadist rebels in the area began to heavily strike the government’s positions.

The closure of the Morek Crossing is also one of the first steps the Syrian military is taking to prepare for this upcoming security operation in the southeastern countryside of Idlib.

There has been a lot of speculation regarding this operation for several weeks now; however, it appears the Syrian and Russian high commands have approved the offensive.

Leading this operation will be the elite Tiger Forces, who are currently deployed at the Abu Dhuhour Military Airport in southeast Idlib.

The main objective of this operation will be clear the remaining towns under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham near this imperative military installation.

The Russia-Turkey agreement stopped the offensive operation of Syria-Russia-Iran-Hezbolah ground troops in this area. Russia must stop playing peace with Turkey and continue helping Syria to get rid of terrorirsts in Idlib. Turkey must go back home, and Syria must give Turkey a week to leave Idbil area or to face the consequences of its invasion decision.
