BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies are awaiting the green light from their high command and the Russian military in order to begin their long-awaited Idlib operation, a military officer told Al-Masdar News from the city of Mhardeh in northern Hama.

Speaking to Al-Masdar on the condition of anonymity, the Syrian Army officer said that their forces continue to grow bigger by the day as thousands of soldiers make their way to the Hama and Idlib governorate of northwestern Syria.

The officer continued that the Russian government is currently in talks with the Turkish regime to allow the Syrian military to retake the areas currently under the control of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham around the agreed upon demilitarized zone.

However, he added that the Turkish regime is attempting to block the operation by insisting that their allied rebel forces will expel Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

The main obstacle for this operation will be to get the Turkish military to remove their observation posts from the front-lines in Hama, Idlib, and Aleppo.

Turkey has previously refused to remove their observation posts in northwest Syria and instead, proposed a demilitarized zone that their rebels have failed to withdraw from.

The Turks have had amply opportunity since the original Syrian rebellion began in 2011 to restrict or prevent in their border regions the gathering and strenthening of foreign-backed jihadis including their own. Instead the duplicitous Turkish Government was quite happy to buy stolen Syrian oil from these grousps, especially ISIS, until the Russians intervened in Syria in Sept, 2011.
Time for the Syrian Government and ordinary Syrians to recover their territory. Hope the Russians concur on this point and help the Syrian Government and SAA to achieve their aims

And wait the moment you’ll get that Sunni shitlamists (mostly Qatar/Turkey puppets in Muslim Brotherhood offshoots) are actually allied to… Shia Islamists! Learn about the Malatyalılar group in Turkey. Now meditate this : Zarqawi hid in Iran before being smuggled to Iraq by IRGC/Quds-Force then created ISIS and allied with Saddamsts later… Guess who is pulling ISIS strings? You surely know that Sayeed Qutb was Muslim Brotherhood’s theorist… Guess who translated him into Farsi? Khamenei himself, just like MB’s founder Hassan al-Bana translated ‘Mein Kampf’ in Arab. D’you think that a genuine raffidah leader would translate the Sunni MB’s thinker… Read more »

Turki doesnt want Russians & SAA to start the military operation as they fear HTS will enter into Turki with their tails tucked and after regrouping they can create chaos in Turki which is Sultan’s worst nightmare.
