The Turkish military has dent a new convoy of troops and military equipment in order to strengthen its forces deployed in the Syrian province of Idlib. Some sources link this move with recent reports that terrorist groups like Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, Houras al-Din and other al-Qaeda-like organizations are not going to withdraw from their positions in the demilitarized zone pre-agreed by Moscow and Ankara.

If these terrorist groups keep their attitude and continue violations of the ceasefire regime established near the province of Idlib, this may trigger a military response from the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance. Ankara, which is not interested in any advances of pro-government forces in Idlib, is preparing to employ its own military option in this case. Thus, its forces will punish the militants having a low level of loyalty to their Turkish patrons, impose at least formally the demilitarization zone and to prevent advanced by the Syrian Army in Idlib.

Low intensity clashes between the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces and ISIS are still ongoing in the Hajin pocket in the Euphrates Valley. Recently, the US-led coalition has even employed B-1B Lancer heavy bombers to target ISIS positions there. Nonetheless, the ISIS-held pocket is far from being eliminated.

Ukraine has become a hub for terrorists moving from the Middle East to the European Union and Russia, the Ministry of State Security of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) said on October 16.

According to the ministry, LPR security forces detained a member of the criminal network assisting terrorists from the Middle East to arrive in Ukraine and then to move to the European Union or Russia. The detained criminal was identified as a Ukrainian citizen, Oleg Stepanenko born on September 12, 1983. He reportedly participated in the transfer of terrorists and weapons through Ukraine using the contacts of the criminal network with Ukrainian security forces and intelligence.

The defeat of ISIS in the most of territory of Syria and Iraq forced former members of the terrorist group to seek safe haven in other regions across the world. These flows of terrorists, whose main designations are Afghanistan, North Africa and the EU pose a sufficient security threat setting ground for the destabilization and new major terrorist acts in these areas.

    Who cares as EU has been against Assad .. they reap what they sowed.

    They do what they like in EU … no one sheds a tear.

  • Russia will kill them and the EU will give them social benefits and immunity for rape.

        Its actually true. According to danish media 200 ISIS terrorists are walking around freely on danish welfare. Why is danish public service so happy for terrorists? Because they get paid from various funds to take them in!

          Thats a typical danish way, and we are not the only one doing exact the same.

          You have to have solid evidense for crime as well as irs only illegegal to fight for others.Parts of them are not danish and are not even responsible here for, what they have done in Syria, Iraq and lie that.

          And YES, WE DO PUBLIC SERVICE TO ALL and have equal right in that unless they are refugees. So its not a matter of they are terrorists at all.

          I cant see any funds are needed for that at all.

          Hopefully most of them will get jobs and pay tax too.

          We use: You are not guilty until its proven. Its better to let a criminel free then jail some innocent.

            Come to that, say I’d been a terrorist. I was a teenager in Iraq or Libya, my family got split up or dead, I was broke, maybe gonna starve, and seriously pissed off at everything, and some guys came along and said they’d pay me and feed me and all I had to do was take out my anger on whoever they pointed me at, in the name of Allah. So then it was the crazy life, danger and violence and fear and rage.

            And then it all went sour and I ran for my life and ended up in . . . Denmark, with food and a solid roof and security and education and a chance at a decent job. Would I go back to terrorism? Bugger that for a lark. The Danes will probably be OK.

      • Olympus Mons …. with which bit do you disagree?

    Well, bombing all over Europe is coming some time ahead, at least Europe send these terrorists to Afganistan or somewhere else.
