Chatter of an incoming large-scale ground operation in Greater Idlib have ramped up following the apparent failure to negotiate any solution between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

As the days were leading up to Erdogan and Putin’s meeting the situation seemed rather calm, and that remained for a few days.

Following that, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the other terrorist factions in Greater Idlib renewed their frequent ceasefire violations.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) responded, and Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) airstrikes also continued their near-daily occurrence.

On October 5th, the SAA sent a large convoy of reinforcements to the Idlib frontlines, as seen in several videos.

Turkey is also making its own deployments to Syria, sending reinforcements so as not to be caught unprepared in case of an operation starting.

The Saraya Ansar Abu Bakr al-Siddiq faction announced that it had used an IED to attack a convoy of the Turkish Armed Forces on the Nakhlai-Erich highway in the Syrian province of Idlib.

The group is one of the terrorist factions in the region, and is presumably protected by Turkey, but still targets it.

There are two versions of why that is happening:

The first is the attack is a sort of revenge for all the Syrians who were killed by Turkish soldiers along the border. The second version is that the group was allegedly “planted” by Damascus to sabotage the Greater Idlib terrorists and Turkey army from behind enemy lines.

Still, on October 5th, full fire exchange returned in Greater Idlib.

SAA shelling targeted the towns of al-Bara and Kansafra, and the villages of al-Fatira, Fleifel, Sfuhun and al-Ruwaiha in Zawiya Mountain, south of Idlib, with rockets and heavy artillery.

Additionally, bombing targeted the villages and towns of Tuqad, Kafr Nuran and Mekalbis, west of Aleppo, and the Ghab Plain, west of Hama.

The Turkistan Islamic Party targeted government forces’ positions in the village of Tanjara, west of Hama.

The mutual shelling coincided with an intense flight of Russian drones over the targeted areas.

For months, the northwestern regions of Syria have been witnessing mutual bombardment between the two sides of the conflict in different areas.

There is certainly a limit to how long this constant exchange can continue before the SAA and Russia’s VKS are forced to go on the offensive and move in. After all, the Idlib factions have little interest to push outwards as they are protected by Turkey’s observation posts, to a point.

Idlib's coming home

That boomshakalaka abu baqr yallah habibi (or whatever its name is) faction and all the other terrorist scumbags have been targeting Erdogan’s troops because he didn’t intervene in ANY way to prevent the gathering of the SAA/Russian reinforcements. So they attack his troops to say “look dudes, if you don’t fight the SAA/Russians just because you’re scared, we will attack you instead. there’s no running away from this war. you’ll either fight them or we will kill you.” that’s all.

As soon as it’s liberated the IRGC need to go in there to mop up. And if they see any wahabbi or sunni in there…..just bury them alive in a giant death pit with bulldozer……fuck I can’t wait……

Icarus Tanović

No sunni, just Wahhabi Satanists.

Chris Gr

The second version is correct. Far-right saboteurs.

Icarus Tanović

Do you also suck?

Chris Gr


Icarus Tanović

You just sucked to me, so continue to do the same to the others.

Chris Gr

You are the real lunatic not me

Icarus Tanović

Yes, and I’m psychopath too, your worst nightmare. You gonna suck my dick, so I won’t be beating hell out of you every single day, somewhere in Fuckistni prison. You greeks are 90% turkic, you should ask sultan to become part of greater turkay.

Chris Gr

Yes, Turks and Greeks have similar cultures just like Iraqis and Iranians for example.

Icarus Tanović

Ok. This tells me that you are not Greek from million miles away. So, continue to suck my dick.

Chris Gr

I am

Icarus Tanović

You are LIAR!


The SAA, Russian forces and supporting allies hold all the cards. They can attack Idlib turk backed terrorists at will, from ground, air or sea.

hts on the other hand is living on borrowed time. It will be ugly when the clock stops. Thinking you can flee to turkey? Highly unlikely…

Lance Ripplinger

The terrorists won’t be around on this earth for much longer. It is only inevitable that the SAA will retake the M4 highway.


There is bigger chance of Turkey getting pissed off and launching an assult on Damascus itself and conquering whatever that remains of Syria


they do that and Iran, Russia and China go in and demolish Istanbul quick.

Capt. Steven Hiller, USMC

Erdodog would be committing suicide if he tried that lol

Chris Gr

This will happen. It is in both Christian and Islamic prophecies.

Icarus Tanović

Wahhabi narcotic prophesy.

Chris Gr

Real prophecies. After all, Bosnian, Afghan and Chechen Wahhabis are on your side.

Icarus Tanović

No, they’re on your side, pig. Only Wahhabi headchoppers can come up with somwthing like that. You’re bitch with a perm, you, yes you.

Chris Gr

Yes they are. Look at who fought for you. Moderate headchoppers.

Icarus Tanović

Hey member of turkic people named greek, I’m every month down in Attica. We can talk toe to toe.

Chris Gr

I don’t go in Attica.

Icarus Tanović

It is TO Attica, you moron. Because you’re coward. Look at my eye.

Chris Gr

Moderate headchopper


The “tell” will be when Turkey shoots down VKS assets over Idlib.

At same time Azerbaijani and Turkish forces with aide of Israeli intelligence and drones will attack Armenian forces so that the land bridge through Nakhichevan is resolved.

Iran will thus be tied up with its Azeri mess. Russia will be forced to help Armenia.

When Turkey knocks out VKS over Idlib the balloon is up.


Iran will not stay silent will crush azer and turcic jackals.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
