Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq Launched New Attack On Turkish Forces In Greater Idlib

On April 15, Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq announced that its cells had carried out yet another attack against Turkish forces in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

In a statement, the group claimed that its cells struck a convoy of the Turkish military on the eastern corniche of Idlib city with an improvised explosive device (IED). According to the group’s claims, at least one vehicle was damaged.

Local sources confirmed that an IED went off in Idlib city’s eastern corniche on the noon of April 15. Nevertheless, no casualties were reported.

Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq, which first emerged in November of 2020, is believed to be linked to al-Qaeda. The group’s leaders are yet to be identified.

The group’s cells carried out a number of attacks against Turkish forces over the last few months. In the most recent attack, which took place on April 8, a Turkish military convoy was struck with an IED while it was passing on a road in southern Idlib.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defense has not commented on the new attack in Idlib, so far. These attacks will not likely stop any time soon. On the contrary, the rate of the attacks against Turkish forces appears to be increasing.

    LOL, Poor old Erdogan is really copping a hammering lately, the people Erdogan once used to support now attack him with the very same weapons he once provided them, and as bad as that is in itself it’s not the biggest problem he faces, now it seems one of his biggest media propagandists is starting to turn on him as well, so double LOL.
    I just read one of the SOHR reports and nearly fell off my chair reading it, the fat little dwarf actually told the truth for as change, and more importantly he told his readers the truth about Erdogan, and Erdogan won’t like that one little bit. Triple LOL.
    If you want a good laugh too I’ll provide the link, and this time I wont warn anyone to be critical of what’s said, I don’t have to, he’s telling the truth this time, LOL.

      Looks like the civilians will be praying for the SAA to takeover so they get some stability and honest governance. Everyone is fighting each other just like gangs do when there is no control.
