Mighty "Moderate Rebels" Pressure Turkish Army In Idlib. US-led Coalition Is Crumbling

The notorious “moderate rebels” have blown up a bridge on the M4 highway in southern Idlib as part of their effort to sabotage the creation of a security zone in the area. The Kafr bridge is located near the town of Jisr al-Shughr, near positions of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the Turkistan Islamic Party, both of which are linked to al-Qaeda. Surprisingly, pro-opposition sources publicly admit that the bridge was destroyed to hinder Russian-Turkish plans to conduct joint patrols along the M4. After previous acts of sabotage against the deal, supporters of the Idlib “moderates” opted to blame “Russian barbarians”, “sectarian Iranian militias” or the “puppet Assad regime”. But such claims did not hold water because the rough actions of the Idlib militants were too obvious.

Over the past two weeks, Turkish troops have conducted at least 8 patrols on their own along the M4 highway and participated in 2 joint patrols with Russian Military Police west of Saraqib. However, the presence of the Turkish Army in the area of the supposed security zone did not stop supporters of Idlib armed groups from building barriers with large mounds of earth, blowing up bridges, destroying improvised Turkish road checkpoints and even staging IED attacks on Turkish military columns. The constant threat of terrorist attacks will clearly remain a sad reality of modern Idlib for as long as al-Qaeda-linked groups exist there.

On March 25, a Turkish soldier, Umit Udul, shot himself dead near the town of Ras al-Ayn in northeastern Syria. Kurdish sources claim that he did it as an act of protest against the actions of the Turkish Army in Syria. However, these claims remain unconfirmed. The security situation in the Turkish-controlled part of Syria’s northeast has been deteriorating for months. So, the incident may have been a result of local tensions.

Two Turkish soldiers were killed by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region, in the area of the Turkish anti-PKK operation “Claw”. The Turkish Defense Ministry confirmed the casualties saying that 8 PKK members were “neutralized” in response to the attack.

Rocket strikes continue hitting US-linked facilities across Iraq. Early on March 26, several rockets were launched at the area of the US embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone. A day earlier, on March 25, unidentified forces shelled Camp Taji, the biggest military base hosting US troops in the country. Regular rocket attacks already forced the US military to evacuate several smaller bases, including the key fortified facility near the Syrian border – al-Qaim. This was done under the pretext of “successes” against ISIS and COVID-19-related issues.

Meanwhile, the US-led coalition itself is collapsing. On March 25, Maj. Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf, a spokesman for the Commander in Chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces, announced that French troops had withdrawn from Iraqi territory.

    The moderate rebels are ready for a fight if the Assadist regime were to be foolish enough. Turkey has pledged that it will pound the regime gangs with artillery and even drones to halt any advances.

    • purplelibraryguy

      I’m sure that will work just as well as it has so far. Oh wait, that’s not very well.

    • El Mashi

      “…..moderate rebels…” That is a fantasy. Dr. Bashar Assad is the savior of the Syrian people. The United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey Jihadi terrorists were loathed by almost everybody. Due to Saudi bankruptcy, and Israel fighting Corvid 19 pandemic, there will be no money to pay mercenaries. Soon, Syria will liberate its stolen Golan Heights, and expel invaders and occupiers. That is possible.

          well he’s of the leper colony working for the tel aviv branch of evil. fortunately that branch will soon be terminated and thus it’s place in history be over, for good.

          • Jens Holm

            If so he at least has a job. 50% of the populations in Syria, Iraq and Iran has no jobs.

            Thats why so many joined the Jihadisme having no life as it was.

        • Jens Holm

          CIA is more clever then Azriel. If anything he is payd by Syria or Russia to let Israel and Jews look bad.

          Jews normally are not stupid as You are. Most of them are more normal then You, but they also have too many zionist which could be fanatics in any camp.

          By writing bad about Mrs Herskowitz You support the Zionist well. With You on their side, they never will need members.

        Assads is a violent corrupt regime being a minority in Syria.

        I hope You are a doctor for my worst enemies. If not, I can recomend You.

        Assads nver has deserved Golan. It was showed very well in 1967 and confirmed 1973.

        Saudis are not bankrupt but spend too much money. Thats why Aramco whatever came into the stockmarket and gave them billions.

      ‘Moderate rebels’ – like the Turkistan Islamic Party? Could that extremist faction, of foreign paid mercenaries, be literally any less representative of Syrian national interests?

    • rightiswrong rightiswrong

      Jewhadis are on their last piece of Syrian territory, but you think Assad is losing!

      No wonder your lot went without a state for 2 thousand years, muppet people.

  • Marcel

    May be the Kremlin decided to don’t resume the offensive in April. Because the Turkish forces are enough in bad position. Also it’s possible that Putin want to give a chance for Erdogan to live Idlib peacefully.

    If the blowing up of the bridge is close to HTS H/Q, then the target/coordinates is/are readily identifiable for a medium sized cruise missile hit.

    the USA is crumbling—now in addition to its world class obesity, mental illness (US data claims 30%—an obvious lie), rapes per capita, crime, wealth/income disparities, stupidity (only in 3 developing nations of the 36 nations examined did students perform worse than amerikans—OECD—they now report more virus cases than any other nation….will the amerikan virus kill the malign amerikan empire?

      hope so – education is limited for those who can pay for it – in the fly over states it’s reduced to kindergarten level with no intention to provide a competitive education, just distraction for a number of years till they can be deemed grown up and fend for themselves, i.e. no burden for society and then it’s either the marines or the meth-business. both serve the capital in the sense that the marines serve the mic and the meth-maker the privatized prison system. not fun being a born yankeetwat today!!

        how could you say that! Its actually worse than that…

          Its not, but things should be changed. I think they will choose Biden, but they need Sanders for several things.

            Biden don’t stand a chance in hell, the primaries were rigged for him.and when old flapper Joe comes up for election Trump will win by a landslide just as it was intend that he will.!!

      • Jens Holm

        Typical discount version. Here in this Forum the American Middle class dont exist. There are only poor and some few rich jews named rotchild, zorro whatever.

        Its true the low incommers educate lower and lower, but the rest dont do as You insinuate. They pay low taz, because they then can save for education, medication and like that.

        So at least 250 millions in USA is not as You describe. They save for education and get scholarships as well as they can get cheep loans.

        There is a lack in the bottom, but the rest is not so bad. GDP say so too, but that of course is ignored by Verner …

        • JustPassingThrough

          keep up jens
          you r really behind the curve.
          don’t you ever check things out before you post this BS

        • Robert Ferrin

          Nonsense 74% of GDP comes from the low paying service sector,where people work two and sometime three jobs to pay the rent and put food on the table.Then we have a few million living in poverty,a few million kids that go to bed hungry at night,and seeing there is about 290 million adult Americans that knocks your bullshit or propaganda in the head.Our actual GDP is somewhere between $12 and $14 trillion the rest is make believe in the financial scam known as wall street.Now go back to sleep the next time you wake up you may come back to reality.!!!!

        US dept of ed claims that California and Oregon r amounts the worst in the US–massachusets the best…Durkheim wrote that “only the least developed societies punish widely and severely” in the Western Hemisphere only the US permits capital punishment and no European nation does; the US incarcerated more per capita by a ratio of 5-1 non whites than any nation in history. In the past 10 years Russia has closed 40 prisons and halved the incarcerated population
        in 1992 the US dept of education in a randomized study of 25,000 us university grads found that 60% were not English proficient; in 2005, it was 69%–skewed by aSians–the most proficient at 54% and improving and blacks at 33% also improving, while caucasian and latin university grads r less English proficient and declining in English proficiency—obvious…amerikans confuse public/private, impact/influence—ask an amerikanw a graduate school education to define a gerund, the subjunctive form, distinguish a simile from a metaphor, an analogy from an allegory—never r they able.

    • Jens Holm

      Thats partly correct. They do need reforms, but this is a bzar version in high heels :)

      Your virus version is far out too. You dont know, what the comming days will bring.

    Very funny version.

    Bizar version USA is “evacuating.

    The French are called in By Bagdads and the Bagdads can not secure those teachers. Its the same for other in Nato. Iraq by Bagdad dont need us, so why be there.

    All here has been mad for years. Why support any of those groups. We should let Iran take over and never have been expensive meat for that quagmire.

    “a Turkish soldier, Umit Udul, shot himself dead near the town of Ras al-Ayn in northeastern Syria. Kurdish sources claim that he did it as an act of protest against the actions of the Turkish Army in Syria.”

    No way; he probably got dumped by his boyfriend back in Turkey and got depressed. I’m not even kidding; you guys know faggotry is absolutely rampant in the Turkish army, right? Back when I was in the army, I remember a soldier that had been stationed at Incirlik told me at night you’d hear the new recruits getting a$$ raped. In the Russian Army, hazing means they beat the crap out of you. In the Turkish army, hazing means you get f*cked in the a$$.

  • nyomarek

    This happens is you open the doors of a supermax prison and arm the inmates and let them roam Syria Idlib.
