BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – A large number of militants were redeployed from northeastern Syria to the Idlib Governorate this week as they attempt to stop the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) offensive.

According to reports, the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army sent a large number of their fighters from the Al-Hasakah and Al-Raqqa governorates to the Idlib front.

These reinforcements from the Syrian National Army are expected to back up the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) at the southeastern front of Idlib.

On Monday, the Syrian Arab Army resumed their offensive in southeastern Idlib after taking a brief hiatus due to the poor weather conditions inside the governorate.

They are onto a loser. Turkey’s attention is now on oil rich Libya.
I expect the SAA with RuAF to eliminate these losers.

Good more dead terrorists. They have not been able to hold any territory. Their days are numbered and time is not on their side either.

@SR, good for Syria and bad for Libya. Mashalla the Sultan will help his Jihadi to embrace the virgins.

If this is true, all Syria east of the Euphrates, currently occupied by the SDF, becomes a war zone.
SDF can’t have it both ways: peace in the east and war in the west. They’ve got to decide where their interests lie.

What surprises me is how Turki is able to get away by openly supporting Islamic Jihadis to wage an open war against a sovereign nation Syria by openly providing these Terrorists Arms, Ammunition, Vehicles, heavy weapons, mobile vehicles and other hardware and an open passage from Turki border into Syria and back that too the Turki Army is openly involved meaning Turki Govt has given the green signal to use these non state actors against Syria. Recently Turki Army directly attacked Syrian Army forces & caused deaths of its soldiers in long range artillery attack. How come UN, FATF and… Read more »

Erdogan ahora enfrenta directamente al ejercito Sirio, Putín no entiende hasta ahora que el enemigo mas peligroso que mismo Al-qaeda o ISIS es Erdogan, miembro de la Hermandad Musulmana que ahora entiende sus tentáculos hacia Libia.

@Nestor, IMHO Putin understands. But I cannot yet understand Russia’s stance. The anti Sultan coalition in the East Mediterranean fuel spat consists of Egypt, Cyprus, Israel and the Libyan parliament’s forces. & the gas pipeline goes to Greece. Additional allies have companies doing business there: e.g. Italy and France.

The Sultan will need a backup against this cabal – the Czar or the US Emperor? I wonder who is the favorite of Gazprom and eXXon. If both are involved in the coalition’s business. There is nobody that will lobby for his greater Turkey. 😛

Maybe time to consider a pincher movement in a blitzkrieg pattern to cut them from supply lines?
