An infamous military camp, where Jaysh al-Izza trains its militants a few meters away from refugee camps, has been finally geolocated.
On November 26, activists on Twitter revealed that the camp was located in northern Idlib, near the al-Bab al-Hawa border crossing less than 2 km away from Turkish border. Three large refugee camps are located right near the camp.

The camp is named after Abdul Baset al-Sarout, a so-called “icon” of the Syrian opposition who was killed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in 2018.
For more than two years, Jaysh al-Izza trained its militants with live ammunition and heavy weapons in the camp, a few meters away from refugee camps.
The Reverse Side of the Medal, a Telegram news channel with sources in Syria, claimed that the camp is no longer in use. This is very possible as Jaysh al-Izza lost most of its militants and assets in its recent battles with the SAA.
The Telegram channel released images of three other military camps in Idlib without clarifying by what factions they are used.
Turkey, the main backer of Jaysh al-Izza and other factions in Greater Idlib, is doing nothing to remove such dangerous facilities away from its borders. The border region is now infested with militants’ training camps, military headquarters and even ammunition depots.
