BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – Turkey and Russia have failed to reach an agreement on a ceasefire inside the Idlib Governorate of northwestern Syria, the Syria-based Al-Watan newspaper reported on Monday morning.

Citing opposition sources, Al-Watan said the negotiations stalled between Turkey and Russia after the latter asked Ankara to hand over the Jabal Shashabo region in northwestern Hama.

In addition to handing over Jabal Shashabo, Turkey would have to withdraw from its observation post in Sher Magher, which was allegedly a major issue for Ankara during the negotiations.

The publication said the goal of the negotiations was to secure the Hmeimim Airport in southwestern Latakia, along with the Christian towns of Al-Sqaylabiyeh and Mhardeh in northwestern Hama.

Handing over Jabal Shashabo would be a major blow to the jihadist rebels and the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front, as it would leave the Syrian Arab Army in prime position for a future offensive in Idlib.

At the end of June, Russian President Vladimir Putin will be attending a meeting in Japan with Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Donald Trump. Putin is expected to discuss the situation in Idlib and the need for a military solution to the jihadist forces there.

Turkey is invader force and doesn’t have right to be in Syria . Russia should not ask Turkey but to take it by fore which doesn’t belong to turkey. Turkey is supporting ihadist and alqaeda who is attacking Airbase and civilian target in latakia. Why Russia is talking to turley who is supplying all kind of weopeons with the help of US. there is secret deal between turkey and US to keep Terriost in Syria.

Turkey is gonna get a Sèvres Treaty v2.0. Atatürk saved the day because he was a progressive Free-Mason atheist… Erdogan Ottomaniac shitlamist fantasies can only end with balkanisation of Turkey, unless he resigns, ends with an “accident” and AKP is banned. Erdogan himself predicted that would Turkey lose this war (he himself started!), a Sèvres Treaty v2.0 would be forced on Turkey. Since money is the nerve for war and Turkey is on the brink of bankruptcy while Erdogan signs checks he can’t cash and Central-Bank interest rates have rose to 24% (!!!) while Erdogan managed to end with splats… Read more »

Let me laugh : the Ottomaniac empire disappeared and since Atatürk was one of ours, he was let to create a progressive Turkish state. Atatürk warned just about what the crazy Sultan is now doing : If you think we will let Erdogollum recreate an Ottoman Empire that has done nothing else than land-theft, wrecking havoc all around for 5 centuries, you’re seriously deluded! We’d rather nuke Anatolia than letting this happening, and if we don’t, the Russians, the Israelis or the Yankees will. Be aware that if US sanctions hurt, we can REALLY suffocate your economy, adding to the… Read more »

Umar : the Khazar myth has long been debunked by DNA tests. You’re ridiculing yourself, moreover, more than 50% of Israelis are Mizrahim (Levant/Arabia) Jews, then you have Sepharadim (N-Africans). Those you see as Khazars -which aren’t Khazars at all, this stupidity comes from the Neo-Nazi circles- are the Ashkenazim minority of “European Jews” in Israel… And as everybody knows, Hitler killed near all European Jews…
Judaism an excuse for stealing?

Islam has ALWAYS been an excuse for stealing! Stealing from infidels is even legalised by sharia. From having a single city (Medina), Islam stole ALL THIS in the next centuries :
