Members of Idlib militant groups are using Turkish uniforms in an attempt to terrify Syrian troops and prevent Syrian Army attacks on their positions, according to a video released by journalist Lindsey Snell.
This was Feb. 10th, Western countryside of Aleppo, two TFSA men dressed as Turkish soldiers so SAA would believe there were Turkish soldiers in the villages. I can post this now because both men in the video are dead. https://t.co/mlT4bot7Pl pic.twitter.com/AhxKr6mWB9

The journalist claimed that the video was filmed on February 10 in western Aleppo. Nonetheless, by February 17, Syrian government forces had liberated the entire western Aleppo countryside. Furthermore, the Syrian Army advance is developing.The filmed militants are now reportedly dead. So, apparently, this trick did not help.
