Russian, Turkish And Iranian Forces Will Open Key Highway In Idlib Governorate – Report

Illustrative image

On May 15, Ibrahim al-Idlabi, a military advisor to the Free Syrian Army (FSA), revealed to the Syrian pro-opposition news outlet Enab Baladi that Russia, Iran and Turkey are preparing to reopen the strategic highways (Hama-Aleppo) and (Aleppo-Afrin), which pass through the opposition-held areas in Idlib and Aleppo governorates.

According to al-Idlabi, a joint force of these three countries will open the two highways, secure a 10km wide area on their sides and conduct patrols on them. The two highways will be open for civilian and commercial traffic.

Enab Baladi said that Russia, Iran and Turkey had agreed to open these two highways during a previous round of the Astana talks. However, the three countries didn’t set a timeline to fulfill the agreement, likely because the priority was to conduct anti-ISIS operations.

Now, it appears that the three countries are ready to employ this plan, especially that the ISIS pocket southwestern Aleppo was eliminated. The Turkish Army also imposed its control over the Afrin area and established the agreed upon observation posts in northern Syria.

Syrian pro-government activists doubt that this optimistic plan could be executed on the ground due to the presence of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), which controls large parts of the Hama-Aleppo highway. However, observers believe that Turkey may be able to pressure HTS into accepting the plan, the way it has accepted the observation posts.

    This is mere day dreaming and HTS are supported by Turkey. Turkey will never allow this to happen finding the excuse of opposition from the terrorists it supports. The so called observation posts by the Turkish regime are nothing more than occupation of Syrian sovereign land to protect the terrorists they support. Only a military operation by the Syrian government to take back its own sovereign land can open this highway.

    • HTS are our moderate brothers, i urge all Muslims and whole world to unite as one under one banner and i ask my brothers and sisters for solidarity. Turkey is local superpower and will stay.

        I urge you to start your jihad in Israel.

        • Soon inshallah

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            so you are planning to attack, the ones who created you and been arming you all this years. And why you haven’t done this since the beginning? I was with the idea israel is all muslims enemy with the exception of the arab zionists, like SA and of course your kind. What changed now and you claim to be ready to attack your masters?

          • There were plans to capture Jerusalem since the 29. june 2014 (The official establishment of the khilafah) but many things went wrong and it looks that the coalition controlled the areas where we can go and where we can’t. They allowed us to take Raqqa but when we moved to Mosul and tried to attack Baghdad they stuck the convoys so hard by endless airstrikes and their helicopters that it was nearly impossible to survive in any vehicle except on bare foots or masked as civilians. And without the istishadi bombers, heavy artillery, vehicles with heavy machine guns or heavy vehicles the effort is not worth it. And what is much worse Israel is protected not only by America but also from Russia and their own well trained forces.

          ISISrahell have the most up to date weapons that use frequencies to disable vehicles and even personnel, they emit a frequency and a majority of humans drop to the ground. So in theory. They launch an emp blast and all tank stop.

          So find out the counter-measures, frequency that needs to be played that will cut that (frequency of love would do it) from Putin and Israhell can be defeated.

        • Rob

          Good point but he will never do jehad in Israel because he is a fake Muslim like Saudis betraying the world Muslim community and making Islam religion notorious. This is their mission.

          Al-Qaeda rebrands itself as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, a moderate alternative to the Islamic State(ISIS).

          Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the Sunni group that last month seized control of the northern Syrian city of Idlib, is simply a ‘rebranding’ of Al-Qaeda that is positioning itself as more moderate than the Islamic State in hopes of a resurgence, according to experts….

            ISIS is the lowest scum on this planet close to be followed by HTS , evangelics and zionist pigs

          • New Israel is Muslims

            They are Hasbara trolls trying to ruin SF comments.

            ISIS/Al CIAda is filled with jewish agents directing dumb Muslims to murder other Muslims. These jew agents have come to SF since ISIS is losing in Syria, no “work” but to go to SF and other places trying to bridge the gap between free people and Mossad front groups.

    • Sahih International

      O you who have believed, do not take My enemies and your enemies as allies, extending to them affection while they have disbelieved in what came to you of the truth, having driven out the Prophet and yourselves [only] because you believe in Allah, your Lord. If you have come out for jihad in My cause and seeking means to My approval, [take them not as friends]. You confide to them affection, but I am most knowing of what you have concealed and what you have declared. And whoever does it among you has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way.

        How’s the plan working there? Why are you using Jewish media such as Google and speaking English, this is wrong. You need to put the phone down that you hold in your hand too. It is a device of the Devil. Why you want White women so bad too, since you’re so religious. Where is the beheading getting you? What will the Iranian do, since you don’t believe that a Caliph must come from Mohamed. What have the Israelis done for you since you’re an Ally to Israel. Look at Lebanon and Gaza, you supported the Jews by believing the lies of your religious leaders.

        Yes, you support Israel and talk about beheading people. What about Gaza and Yemen, how’s that working out? Why are you Allies with the Americans, you disbeliever and support the Rich Saudi Princes instead of REVOLTING against them? God Bless Assad and Putin for protecting the Christian and Muslims from the Saudis and Jews/American, and uneducated children like you. I remember American Troops in Saudi Arabia, to help out in the nineties, Near Mecca and Medina too. And now you support Israel and Saudi, instead of Iran. You’re two faced. I though you were a Muslim, instead you talk about Killing like you have ever done it.

        Your insult to Life and Remember, it is Putin who will blow you up, if you push to hard. Yes, with Nuclear Bombs. To stop Israel and their Saudi Lovers.

        You like Gay men, and will die from a bullet of a women Non Believer.

        There will be no 40 virgins for you.

            They are done, finished, the syrians are cleaning up the de-escalation zones (East Ghouta and the Rastan pocket were already liberated; next: Daraa and Idlib). What will rest will be the foreign occupied territories, isolated, because all the civil war will be over. And neither the Turks nor the Kurds will have any chance of getting a inch of syrian territory.

      Empty threats I’m afraid, Europe has been an American colony since WWII, they still have forces of occupation in most European countries.
      If a powerful nation like Germany is to scared to ask American troops to leave, or even demand its gold is returned, why would they become courageous about Iran?

        No point in doing that at all …

        First that would never happen by US free will (unless forced to)
        Second Germans by asking them they would only alert US and make opposite effect.

    If they could get Turkey to concede to it the SAA shouldn’t have too much trouble seizing the whole Idlib province. But it comes down to the fact that Turkey would rather share a border with a small allied state than a strong rival. Also many of militants in the area are already under the indirect control of Ankara, so it is very possible the current state of affairs could continue for years with only sporadic clashes between all sorts of sects. That is to say, Idlib may look a lot like Gaza.

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      How many times has Erdogan told his supporters he would go on to take all of Idlib province [eventually], 2 or 3 times I forget, he’s also stated he wants to take over all of Aleppo province as well, even though the SAA are already there.
      Erdogan’s always been and will probably always be, nothing but a spanner in the works, so don’t hold your breathe waiting for him to concede anything. But I have to admit I didn’t think he’d ever cooperate with the Iranians so maybe somethings changed that will persuade him to do exactly that, but I still won’t be holding my breathe waiting for it to happen.

    HTS are Turkey terrorists, and it is vey likely that cause a lot of problems along this high way. How ever, the very interesting thing is that Iran-Russia are trying to stop any Syria-Turkey confrontation. Even, knowing that Turkey is an invasor country in Syria, even knowing that Turkey made deal with terrorists to get Syria oil, even knowing that Turkey still make smuggling industrial part of Syria industries, even knowing that Turkey shut down a Russia plane, even knowing that Turkey is a NATO member, and even knowing that Turkey has NATO nuclear weapons in his land for possible attack to Russia.
