On Saturday, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) released an official statement threatening Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups that are planning to enter Idlib governorate from Turkey.

HTS claimed in the statement that the upcoming military operation of the Turkish Army and the FSA will be backed by the Russian Army.

HTS said that “Idlib will not be a picnic” for the FSA, and added that its fighters and suicide bombers are ready to face the FSA. HTS used a very aggressive language in the statement. It even threatened to turn the sons of FSA fighters to orphans, and their wives to widows.

From its side, Fateh Hasson the leader of Homeland Liberation Movement denied that Russia will back the upcoming FSA operation against HTS in Idlib governorate in an interview with the Russian news agency Sputnik. However, Hasson revealed that Russia did indeed propose to support the FSA operation in a perverse meeting.

In a related development, the Turkish Anadolu Agency reported that Hulusi Akar Chief of the General Staff of the Turkish Army visited the Turkish Army units on the Syrian-Turkish borders, and checked Turkish Army units along with a group of officers that included Chief of Staff of the Turkish Army Lan Force Lieutenant General İhsan Uyar, the commander of the Turkish Air Force General Hasan Kucukakyuz and the Head of Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization Hakan Fidan.

Meanwhile, the Turkish Army deployed dozens of additional Leopard-2 and M-60T tanks, T-155 Fırtına self-propelled howitzers and ACV-15 armored combat vehicle. The size of the Turkish Army units in the area suggests that it was not deployed there only to secure the border.

    If the Turks do want to cross the border, for the sakes of the Turks, they should do better then operation Euphrates Shield. Their FSA mercenaries proved of little fighting worth, running away at the first sign of an ISIS counter attack, leaving Turkish troops exposed and vulnerable. And that was against ISIS, which still had the option to retreat into Central Syria and Iraq. Al Qaida has no such option. If Idlib falls its over for them. Methinks as a result they will put up a stiffer more desperate resistance.

      Euphrates Shield was a comedy……all they did was ‘invade’ areas already occupied by fsa….so fsa ‘liberated’ areas from fsa…….i will never forget the heroic videos released for the media….fsa brave men inside empty houses …..turning tables upside down, braking mirrors…..like mobs … .anyway Turks had a very hard time organizing the mission ,took casualties etc in what was meant to be a media show……lets see what will happen now since all that you said are true….HTS is very hardcore organisation and has nowhere to run.totally encircled and desperate….

    We all know that the “moderates” are useless as fighters and useless as men. That is after all the reason that HTS/Nusra kicked them out of/forced them into submission in Idlib in the first place. IF we see HTS falling back and FSA “winning” then we know that HTS is simply allowing them to win, just as ISIS did until at Al Bab.

    Can America and UK show to the world that have they won any war against any country in the world? Vietnam, Korean, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria all have defeated America in wars because when America attack over a country then they not only fight with the army but with the public too and public beat them so well that then they look for the routes to run away from the country.

    American and UK economy toss.
    There was one time when these governments were run smoothly. Economy was strong. They funded education sector. There were no academic fee to charge from UK and American students.

    But now economy has been collapsed in America and UK. Now they charge heavy fees from Students and students cannot afford education. Who gonna pay $10,000 per annum in America or £9,000 in UK. Its ridiculous. 30% private colleges in America and UK shut down because of poor number of students’ enrolment. Both governments now put further pressure on institutions to increase fees because there is no fund for employees.

    This bad economy will also put pressure on primary schools education in America and UK.
    If you destroy other nations in the world then your nation will also be destroyed. In Scotland tuition fees for their own students are £1800 per annum but for rest of UK £9000. Scotland knows that UK economy have been collapsed. Therefore, Scotland wants independence.

    In both countries basic life needs are slowly disappearing. Prices going up and economy going down. More and more people becoming homeless because both governments selling public residential properties cheap in auctions to meet their daily expenses and then more greedy property tycoons buying these properties.

    Some army soldiers that have fought in Afghanistan and Iraq are now homeless and sleeping rough in the streets and some in the homeless charity hostels.
    ——————-
    Many people in America and UK Pass their time on charity stuff that is food banks, day centers, soup kitchens and used cloths with full of germs.
    Therefore, in both countries the mortality rate have been increased to shocking high. Unemployment, injustice, Depression, anxiety, heart attacks and suicide cases are common factors in increase of mortality rate in both countries.
