BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels released a new video from the Idlib Governorate that shows their fighters preparing to defend the province.

Led by the National Liberation Front, the Turkish-backed rebels showed their fighters making their final preparations to combat the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies in northwest Syria.

The National Liberation Front is a newly formed rebel coalition that is backed by Turkey; they claim to oppose the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG), Syrian Arab Army, and Islamic State (ISIS).

As shown in the video below, most of the NLF’s fighters come from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces that are currently active in northwest Syria:

The National Liberation Front is just one of the rebel coalitions planning to defend Idlib; there are groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the Turkestan Islamic Party, and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham that are also active at this front.

Yesterday they were supposedly willing to back the saa against HTS?? I think saa should just get on with it,let the different groups sit behind their defences and take them out one at a time! Start with HTS then take a few weeks off for “negotiations” then stert again on this turkish lot!
