Turkish-Backed Syrian National Army Is Deploying Reinforcements In Greater Idlib – Report

The Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) was deploying reinforcements in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on August 27, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The sources told the UK-based monitoring group that many of the SNA’s factions, including the al-Shamiya Front, the al-Hamza Division, the Elite Army and the Sham Legion, had been deploying reinforcements since mid-August.

“Since mid-August, [the factions] began transferring military groups in batches from the areas of the Olive Branch and Euphrates Shield operations, towards Idlib governorate, at the request of Turkish intelligence,” the SOHR’s report reads.

The SOHR noted that the move had coincided with the deployment of reinforcements of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) around the al-Zawiya Mount in southern Idlib.

According to several recent reports, the SAA and its allies are preparing to launch an operation in Greater Idlib with the target being the al-Zawiya Mount. The militants, including those backed by Turkey, are preparing to repel any attack on their remaining strongholds.

Greater Idlib is occupied by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham. The group is allied to Turkish-backed factions and receiving military support from Ankara.

Turkey is apparently planning to confront any new offensive by the SAA and its allies on Greater Idlib. This could lead to a dangerous escalation.

It is really difficult to understand the stubbornness of the turkeys, as they go to slip into junipers from which they cannot come out whole.

Syrian national army doesnt kill like any army ı’ve ever seen.its more like a force of nature,an earthquake ,tornado or a tidal wave.Watching you kill children killers is like watching Rembrandt painting or hearing Mozart conducting his 9th symhony.You are the most beatiful thing ı have ever seen FSA. I THİNK I AM GOİNG TO CRY.


If liberating Idlib is so difficult, then Syria and Russia should meet with Erdogan and offer him not only Idlib, but the whole country and all Russian bases, jets, armor and military infrastructure should be given to Turkey and the strongest ISIS party. All fighting would stop. Syria would be forgotten, annexed into the Great Sharia Caliphate and the CIA would be happiest to move onto the next Failed State Target..


I have never known anyone fight a war where they allow the enemy to get prepared before they are attacked,its time to unleash thermobaric hell on those bastards.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
