Idlib

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels will be fully withdrawing from the Idlib buffer zone, the Anadolu News Agency reported this morning.

The Turkish state-owned Anadolu News Agency did not release any more details regarding this claim; however, this report corroborates information that was given to Al-Masdar last week about the National Liberation Front (NLF) withdrawing their heavy weapons from the area.

While the groups from the National Liberation Front are expected to fully withdraw, the jihadist rebels from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Hurras Al-Deen group are expected to remain in the Idlib buffer zone, as they have rejected the Sochi agreement.

It remains unclear what the fate of the jihadist rebels in the Idlib buffer zone is going to be, as they are technically inside the Turkish-backed rebel areas in the province.
