Idlib Militant Groups Vow To Support Their Counterparts In Daraa

On June 25, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) announced in an official statement that it is ready to launch a military operation against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Syria in order to support militants in the southern governorates of Daraa and al-Quneitra.

The former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria also called on all the armed groups in northern Syria to form a joint operations room as soon as possible to organize the proposed military operation.

Two days later, the al-Qaeda affiliated groups Horas al-Din,  Ansar al-Din and Ansar Allah announced their readiness to form an operations room with HTS and to launch a new joint attack on the SAA in northern Syria, according to the HTS-linked news network Iba’a.

Syrian opposition activists claimed that the proposed attack will target the towns of al-Fu’ah and Kafriya in the eastern Idlib countryside. Thousands of pro-government civilians and fighters are currently besieged inside the two towns by HTS and its allies.

Any attack of HTS and its allies on the two besieged towns will be a major violation of the Turkish-Russian-Iranian de-escalation zone in the governorate of Idlib. Such an attack will also allow the SAA, Iranian-backed forces and the Russian Aerospace Forces to resume their military operations there in order to break the siege on the towns.

    Two de-escalation zones are already liberated and the third in on the way. They are in the fourth de-escalation zone and they don’t want to reconcile, so they know that they are the next. They are f*cked anyway.

      They will have solidarity when the HTS remnants are sent to them by Green Bus Co. :)

    I’ll believe it when I see it. There’s some reason why HTS has allowed the government in Damascus to develop enclaves outside Idlib. Probably has something to do with electrical service.

      Good morning. Wrong, Bill, HTS is attacking the two syrian enclaves.
