In Syria’s Idlib, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham seems to be consolidating control, with neither the Syrian Arab Army nor its Russian support making any significant progress in recent days. This lack of progress comes down to the fact that they still support the existing ceasefire regime while Turkey has refused to honor its responsibility and clear out radical elements from the region.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) is operating with increasing impunity, even as the Biden Administration’s think tanks strive to rebrand them as non-terrorists and cooperate with them in future endeavors. At the same time, the Russian-Turkish patrols in along the separation line in Idlib are taking place, largely without issue, with militants that enjoy Turkish protection that carry out small-scale but regular attacks on the Syrian Army and even on Russian targets.

On February 7th, in Southern Idlib in Kafr Nabi, Al-Qaeda-affiliate Ansar al-Tawhid, a HTS ally, targeted a Syrian and Russian position, claiming to kill 11 as a result. The militants in Idlib appear to be moving outward, with attacks popping up far from their initial positions.

The contact line and the demilitarized zone have been allegedly imposed for a while now, but it is plain to see that it is ineffective to remove the terrorist threat. Moscow continues to put effort toward enforcing the ceasefire agreement, documenting every violation, and responding to most of them.

Again, on February 7th, the Russian forces were also targeted, with two UAVs being downed within 24 hours. One was downed by HTS-affiliated militants in the skies near Idlib, while the other was downed by the SDF, likely following a US order.

The other area that is becoming increasingly volatile is northeastern Syria, with the SDF becoming more and more assertive in their operations.

The SDF continues its activities against ISIS. It launched a revenge operation against the terrorists in Deir Ezzor, over the killing of two officials. At the same time, SDF fights the Turkish forces and the Turkish-backed militants in the area. With the downing of the Russian drone, they appear to be signaling that there will be no cooperation with anybody but the Americans, who have undertaken no movements in recent days.

Terrorists are organizing attacks, and carrying out provocations throughout Syria, and mostly in the southern regions. They pop out of either Idlib, or from the US-controlled areas in northeastern Syria.

Israel has remained static over the last several days, following a large airstrike on reported Iranian positions. The US allies in the face of SDF, however, are causing more than enough trouble for the SAA and Russia.

The HTS is likely also to start more assertive operations against the SAA and Russia. In recent days, the Biden Administration has begun its efforts to rebrand them as a reformed group with no remaining terrorists.

Furthermore, ISIS activity is at a long-time high, and it is likely no coincidence that it began happening as soon as Joe Biden and the Democrats returned to power in Washington.

Biden just go back to common sense, which is a kind of Obama Care.

Its very difficult. USA at the time of Obama promised to stay in Syria at least until som structured relation was with the Assads divided and United.

Russia has tryed the same thing, but Assads denyed that and demanded things in Afrin at onece should go back to the Assad version of “normal”. YPG there denied and Tuyrks gor or took it.

So we see 2 fiascos and no succces for any of the rest of them.

I still see no plans for the future apart from PYD one by Kurds. NONE.

Assad must stay

torkis are such a problem and need to be neutralized and kicked out of syria ASAP!

Jens Holm

Thats a limbo. Only Americans can do that or neutralize them.

JIMI JAMES

Servet Köseoğlu

Hts:The best sniper crew in ME✌️.The last shabiha benders ?.

Lupus

nah..Houthis and Hezbollah are much better.

Servet Köseoğlu

No,they transferred Afghan uzbeks from Afghanistan with Orsis T-5000 experience.

farbat

actually he is right houthies are better they fired with mosin over areas and ranges hitting headshots which is absolute crazy

Servet Köseoğlu

In ME almost everyone is using mosin-nagant nothing new.

farbat

the hits of ansarullah with the mosin everybody uses were simply amazing and terrorist who hold idlib hostage are not even closely comparable with all their backing and butter like you say modern sniper rifles they use

Servet Köseoğlu

Sure,everything related with İran and with its derivatives ultimate ?? .

farbat

self reliant forces are simply better get used to it

farbat

those who have their whole hope and future in the pockets of others arent interesting

Servet Köseoğlu

Did you know that all houthis-hezb members are also excellent at cooking and even better than Michelin star chefs???

farbat

who ultimately owns these terrorists turkey supports because they are not independent at all

Servet Köseoğlu

bs we have nothing to do with their chain of command.

farbat

my issue with the entire issue

farbat

when iran gives an order than ansarullah will pretty much follow even if it hurts them because the relation is based on much more than need

farbat

iran doesnt need to send orders to ansarullah because they are so reasonable and also the have constant talks with iran and all sides which are reasonable enough to engage in talks with them

farbat

hts is a drug addicted mess

farbat

erdogans turkey meanwhile is like a scared child and since the coup he behaves nuts i mean we just saw his comments to the protest which was btw reasonable since all they demanded was a merit based pick and not political and nowadays its all political

farbat

the relations iran starts with forces in west asia arent filled with hooks all over the place

farbat

hardware doesnt make you a better shot

Cromwell

This is whats come from calling off the SAA offensive when they were on their way to Idlib city and doing a deal with the Turks,some of us said this would happen,its way past time to burn Idib down and those rats with it,then it can be reborne once the poison is gone.

Jens Holm

You can ask to be their General I will recommend You. I will help and ask Jesus to wake up some dead soldiers for You too.

Cromwell

No need for that,just take the gloves off.

Diana Cornwell

But, dear boy; why did you get mad when I pointed out the exact same thing which now you’re parroting?

Putin transported millions of ISIS members to Idlib in air-conditioned buses with Turkish collusion.
Putin and his Russians are succoring the Muslim terrorists there instead of eliminating them.
The Turks are happy, Israel is happy.
Putin is NATO’s greatest asset at the moment.

El Mashi

Turkish Army is demoralized as occupiers. They spend their days playing video games and watching porn, and scared to death to get infected by Covid. Turkey’s economy is contracting. Punishment from Allah. Turkey not halal.

Diana Cornwell

Turkey is the best Islam has to offer.
Literally.

John Tosh

This will prove to the world the only solution is the end of the CIA….
Changing governments in the USA has nothing to do with global murders….. the CIA has to be shut down to end global murders.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

“The contact line and the demilitarized zone have been allegedly imposed for a while now, but it is plain to see that it is ineffective to remove the terrorist threat”.

The “contact line” is the M4 highway, and the “demilitarized zone” is a 30km buffer north of the highway controlled by Turkey, and a 30km buffer zone south of the highway which is supposed to be Russian controlled, and it’s been in effect since March 2020, so 11 months now, and there’s nothing alleged about it, it’s a signed document agreed on by both Putin and Erdogan. SF must’ve forgotten that even though they widely published the finalization of the deal.
The 60 buffer zone above and below the highway was the areas of separation, and Erdogan was supposed to remove all the designated terrorists out of the 30km buffer zone that his moderate opposition forces controlled north of the highway.
And what’s happened since then,
Joint patrols were attacked and paused several times and they’re still not holding regular patrols all the way along the highway yet.
Turkey built a bypass extension between Sarmin and Nayrab allowing traffic to bypass Sariqib using the alternate route.
Then Turkey built concrete barricaded/blocks over the highway just east of Nayrab blocking off access to Saraqib, which means the Russians have to travel off road to get around them when they want to continue their patrols further west, so will the SAA if they want to advance on the enemy.
Turkey’s built dozens of OB posts and checkpoints south of the highway in the areas that the Russians are supposed to control according to the 2020 March agreement, but not one Russian checkpoint or OB post has been built during the last 11 months. Turkey’s also been building dozens of OB posts and checkpoints north of the highway where they’re SUPPOSED to build them according to the 2020 March agreement, so that part of the deal is working out fine. :[
And even if Erdogan could separate his moderate opposition forces from the terrorist force it still wouldn’t be enough, his moderate opposition forces attack the SAA ten times more often than the terrorist do, so separating them won’t achieve much at all.
So as far as I can see the deals been pretty lopsided from the start, not only has Russia failed to achieve anything but their simple joint patrols that don’t achieve anything, they’ve also allowed Turkey to build infrastructure in the areas they should be controlling. So unless the Turks are going to vacate their positions south of the highway and allow the Russians to take over, this deal isn’t going to plan.

Diana Cornwell

But it is, dear boy.
Putin works for NATO.

Diana Cornwell

Putin is Erdogan’s best friend.
They just killed thousands of Armenians in Karabakh together, enabling NATO and Israel to encircle Iran and Russia by establishing Turkish and Israeli bases in the Caucasus.
With a leader like Putin, who needs enemies?
Putin is NATO’s greatest asset at the moment.
