On June 12, the Durar al-Jihadiyah media network released a 2-minute video showing militants training in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.
The dramatic video, which is closer to a play than a real life training, features members of the so-called National Front for Liberation (NFL).
The NFL was formed in 2018 with direct support from Turkey. Seventeen groups, including the Sham Legion, the Ahrar al-Sham Movement, Jaysh al-Ahrar, the 1st Coastal Division, the Free Idlib Army, forged the coalition.
Militants in Greater Idlib are now preparing for a new large-scale operation by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. Many reports claimed that the operation will begin soon. However, there is still no confirmation from pro-government sources.
The new training video was likely nothing but a propaganda stunt meant to convince opposition supporters that militants in Greater Idlib are well-prepared for a new attack by the SAA.
