BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – A huge war between the Turkish Army and the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda) is looming in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib.

Yesterday, a huge convoy of trucks belonging to Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham was caught on camera heading towards the Syrian border with Turkey. The video shows dozens of pickups carrying hundreds of troops.

At the same time, the Turkish Army has been spotted moving up to one hundred military vehicles towards the Syrian border including ACV-15 infantry fighting vehicles, M113 armored personnel carriers and MRAP armored cars.

Both forces appear to be converging on the strategic Bab al-Hawa border crossing point – currently under the control of Turkish proxy militias – and indeed should either side fire against the other, this may ignite a war involving hundreds of armed trucks and mechanized assault vehicles.

The split between Turkey and Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham lay in the blatant hostility of the latter towards the former’s proxy allies in Idlib (namely the Free Syrian Army and Ahrar al-Sham) since the beginning of this year.

So, Almasdar has no feelings either way about the Turkish Army invading Syria to do the SAA’s job?

Good to know …
