Militant groups completed their withdrawal of heavy weapons from Syria’s Idlib demilitarization zone on October 8, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency reported citing a correspondent on the scene.

According to another source refered by the news agency, “the opposition had worked during the past days and throughout Sunday night to withdraw heavy weapons, including Grad rocket launchers, mortars and medium-range missiles.”

At the same time, the Tuurkish Armed Forces deployed additional troops and military equipment to the demilitarized zone, according to both pro-militant and pro-Turkish sources.

A representative of the Turkish-backed coalition of miltiant groups known as the National Front for Liberation (NFL) also told media that NFL members will not withdraw from their positions. NFL members also keep light weapons, machine guns and some vehicles equipped with guns.

Militants are withdrawing their weapons from the demilitarized zone:

    ALL of them, ohoho I very doubt that, HTS and TIP will never withdraw from there!

    • Poor Turk

      Its like surrendering, which shouldn’t be happening.

      • Tudor Miron

        What should be happening in Syria is not up to you to decide.

        • Poor Turk

          Leave emotions aside.

          • Bob

            It’s you who is emotional – you’re getting all upset at prospect of Turkey’s failure to steal Idlib from Syria. That just ain’t gonna happen – and after SAA liberate Idlib from militants who knows, maybe Syria might just reclaim its Hatay province, back from thieving Turkey.

          • Brother Ma

            Please God. I can’t wait for Syrians to march triumphantly through Antioch! Only Assad’s Syrians can live in peace with Christians.

            What emotions you’re talking about? Is it a case of you ptojecting your feelings that are present when you’re talking about terrorist scum (acutally those are not just terrorists but simply traitors selling their country for shekels) surrendering?

        • You can call me Al

          He has his own view Tudor.

      Not even in their coffins ?

  • neil barron

    I didn’t see anyone checking under the tarps to see if there is any weapons under there. Don’t even go there that cannon could be a piece of junk and of no use even for parts.

    • as

      The amount themselves were too little than what estimated to be. I believe these militants would have the newest western supplied weapons including personnel SAM and drones. Perhaps even externally guided weapons like gps or laser.

      Neil. There using propane tanks. C’mon! That is an old Turkish Canon from the Ottoman empire. It is a large caliber long range gun. To use it correctly, you need spotters and a lot more. One would only give there location up without much strategic value. This is an infantry war with human hostages and American propaganda and Israeli media. The fact that they are moving only one, says a lot. Useless. But Three is another story. You work in groups with large cannons. That Cannon is fine, they need more and Ammo is super expensive. Stick with the propane tanks, the tanks and large weapons are now useless. Just voicing an opinion

      • Chris P

        Don’t even start shit talking the truck. That is camo yellow for desert warfare. A troop transport and gunpowder. Don’t go there…… Your talking to the hand….

        • Chris P

          That is an amphibious assault vehicle under the tarp too. For a beach landing just in case.

          • Brother Ma

            Haha. Well spotted friend!

      • Brother Ma

        I do not understand the ref to propane tanks. Why?

  • as

    You can’t make this up. The moment they use their heavy weapons lying pathetic Turks revealed. They shouldn’t play bosses with guys they couldn’t handle.

  • gustavo

    It is not possible to trust Turkey, an USA allied and NATO member. Who is checking ? where these weapons go ? Who will take care of these weapons ? Turkey weapons ?……..humm are these the weapons given to the terrorists by Turkey ? and the terrorists are just giving them back to Turkey ?

    • Brother Ma

      I agree. Turkey is either stealing all the equip that its once- ally gave to the turco headchoppers or it is a secret way for america to funnel weapons to Erdoganistan to make them accept US love for the Turds.

  • RichardD

    If this is confirmed by the Syrian government coalition, then it’s good news.

    • IMHO

      Why?

  • pepa65

    Pardon my ignorance, but have they been withdrawing those weapons into Turkey, or deeper into Idlib??

  • IMHO

    And their Turkish allies move their heavy weapons in to replace them. Net change? ZERO.
