Russia Resumes Airstrikes On Greater Idlib, Turkey Places Its Troops In The Region On High-Alert (Photos)

On October 1, the Russian Aerospace Forces resumed their airstrikes on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where several terrorist groups are present and active.

Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the outskirts of the town of al-Zeyarah in the al-Ghab Plains in the northwestern countryside of Hama. The area is a known stronghold of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, and the Turkistan Islamic Party.

At around the same time, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled the village of Batitiyah in the eastern countryside of Idlib with heavy rockets.

The Russian and Syria strikes came two days only after a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The two leaders discussed the unstable situation in Greater Idlib. However, they didn’t reach a new agreement on the region.

A ceasefire agreement brokered last year by Russia and Turkey is being violated by HTS and its allies on a daily basis. Ankara has been doing nothing whatsoever to stop these violations.

Official Turkish sources claimed that the two leaders agreed to maintain the status quo in Greater Idlib. However, the new strikes on the region confirm that this was not the case.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Turkey has placed its troops in Greater Idlib on high-alert. Anti-tank guided missiles and mortars were deployed in several Turkish military posts in the region.

The recent developments indicate that Russia and Turkey are not the same page when it comes to Greater Idlib. It remains unclear however if Ankara would risk its relations with Russia in order to stop a future attack by the SAA on the region.

Oh this is soweet. I just love it when terrorists die by the dozens. Iran needs to get its PMU’s in there and gut these pigs in the streets and toss the cadavers in them big death pits. There is no other solution for sunni/ wahabbi. They must be killed and disposed off before the next unholy Al-Qaeda jihadist generation grows up to cause trouble. Death is the only way to be sure.

PMU is in Iraq only.

Ahson

You wish.

Chris Gr

Tell me that PMU is not islamist.

The Objective

Unfortunately for you, Muslim fighters are only increasing in number across the Middle East. Thousands trained in Syria, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Qatar, etc. We are actually preparing.

Ahson

The Russians know what kind of fool they are dealing with, as do the Chinese, Iran, India etc.

Play the long game. The terrorists and their idiot supporters will disappear. The whole turkish ottoman expansion is a fkn western joke.

erdotard is useful idiot, to be replaced soon.

Jim Allen

US is already working on the ever popular “regime change activity for the Sultan. It’s Zionist master’s are nonplussed with his purchasing Russian military hardware it seems, among other thing’s in his loose cannon leadership style. And, his agitating his NATO partner’s. CIA appear’s it may be losing it’s touch. It’s bag of dirty trick’s must’ve run low, or something.
