Turkish army soldiers stand guard as Kurdish people wait in a hope to enter Cizre, a town subject to a curfew as part of a controversial operation against Kurdish rebels, on March 22, 2016 in Mardin, for Newroz celebration. Nowruz, the Farsi-language word for 'New Year', is an ancient Persian festival, celebrated on the first day of spring, March 21, in Central Asian republics, Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Turkey is allegedly preparing to launch a military operation against the largest jihadist faction inside Syria if the group refuses to be peacefully dismantled.

According to pro-militant media channels, Turkey has informed their militant allies that they should prepare their forces for a potential operation if these groups refuse to dismantle.

The main jihadist faction, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, is expected to be the primary target of such an operation because they control most of the Idlib Governorate.

In addition to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, Turkey is looking to dismantle the jihadists from the Hurras Al-Deen group and the Turkestan Islamic Party; these aforementioned groups are currently active in the Jisr Al-Shughour District of Idlib and parts of northeastern Latakia.

Turkey’s decision to dismantle these jihadist groups is part of an agreement they have with their Russian partners.

It is worth noting that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the other jihadist groups have already refused to dismantle their forces.

Hipócrita, mentiroso y falso es Erdogan, los únicos terroristas para el gobierno Turco son los Kurdos.

I am not holding my breath. To be honest, Turks will attempt another rebranding which of course will go over like a lead balloon.

Likely you are right. Expect them to split off again once they deem the coast is clear.

If HTS and allies are indeed attacked, SAA can use the confusion to clear the M4 and M5 and maybe more.
