BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem stated during meeting with the International Federation of Democratic Youth and the International Peace Council that the armed groups are still inside the Idlib buffer zone.

“Speaking of the agreement on Idlib, of the creation of a demilitarized zone 15-20 kilometers wide. Until now, the terrorists are present there with their heavy weapons, which indicates the lack of desire by Turkey to fulfill its obligations,” Muallem said.

The Syrian Foreign Minister claimed that as a result of their refusal to withdraw, the Idlib province remains under the control of these armed groups.

“Therefore, the Idlib province is still under control by the terrorists who are supported by Turkey and the West,” Muallem stressed.

On Monday, a military source told Al-Masdar News that the jihadist rebels are still active in the Idlib buffer zone, adding that they are strengthening their lines and constructing new trenches near the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) front-lines.
