BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – It appears the new demilitarized zone agreement in Idlib has no affect over the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in northern Latakia, as they carried out new strikes in northwest Syria.

The Syrian Arab Army launched a number of artillery shells and missiles towards the jihadist defenses in the northern Latakia and western Idlib this week, despite the fact a  DMZ agreement was established by Russian Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Sochi on Monday.

According to a military source in Latakia, the Syrian Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) carried out these strikes in retaliation for the attack launched by the jihadist rebels on late Monday.

As shown in the video below, the Syrian Army rains artillery shells and missiles on the jihadist defenses around the Jabal Al-Akrad region of Latakia and Jisr Al-Shughour District of Idlib:

Better do what benefits than do what you believe benefits : things you believe are rarely the things that work. Believing is not an option in politics.
Politic is the art of the possible, not the art of irrational faith.

Speaking alongside Erdogan, Putin said the 15-20km-wide zone would be established by October 15……… October 15th, 3-4 weeks from now; the article is nonsense.

En esta zona está Al-qaeda y Turcomanos por tanto ambos grupos terroristas rechazaron el acuerdo que establecieron el terroristas Erdogan (Hermandad Musulmana) y el débil manipulado Putín.

Hopefully, the Syrian government and commanders will do what is best for Syria. In ways, Russia has used Syria as a political football…to get cozy with Turkey and draw it away from being allied to the U.S. and to itself…and playing footsie with the Israelis….allowing them to come in and attack at will. Sure, Russia wants its Tartous and other air base to be secure..but it doesn’t seem to be losing sleep over Syria being split up by the Turks and U.S. backed Kurds.
