On October 22, President Bashar al-Assad inspected frontlines and met with Syrian Army troops in the town of Habit in southern Idlib. Al-Assad denounced Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan as a thief for attacking the northeast of his country and reiterated a pledge to retake all areas lost to Damascus in years of the war, SANA reported.
“Erdogan is a thief and is now stealing our land,” al-Assad said.
Al-Assad also vowed to liberate Greater Idlib from militant groups operating in the area.
“We said and continue to say that the Idlib battle is the core to decisively end chaos and terrorism in all of Syria,” the President said.
