On February 10, fierce clashes erupted between the Syrian Army and forces led by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) near Nayrab, San and Afis in the province of Idlib. These villages are located just west of the town of Saraqib recently liberated by the Syrian Army from terrorists.

Pro-militant sources report that the attack is a part of the large operation to capture Saraqib from the army. Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other groups involved are actively employing military equipment and weapons supplied by Turkey.

Turkish troops were already spotted near the frontline, while pro-militant sources report that Turkish artillery strikes supported the militant attack.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gave Syria an ultimatum. He demanded the Syrian Army to withdraw from all the areas that it had liberated from militants since the establishment of the so-called demilitarized zone. The Turkish leadership ingores that all these areas were retaken from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups officially excluded from the ceasefire regime. If Syria rejects the withdrawal, Erdogan threatened the country with a declaration of war.

If Ankara really decided to direclty support the terrorists in their attack on the Syrian Army, these actions are a public example of the military agression against the country. It also demonstrates that Turkey’s claims on combating the terrorism are just empty words needed to justify its own foreign policy course.
