As the Turkish Defense Ministry announced another round of ‘devastating blows’ to the Syrian Army in the province of Idlib, the reality on the ground was a bit different.
On February 10, Syrian government forces liberated the villages of al-Qanati, Kafr Halab, Khirbat Jazraya and Miznaz from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other radical groups.
The advance came despite the Turkish-backed attack on the Syrian Army near the city of Saraqib. So far, the only result of the Turkish push towards Saraqib was 5 killed and 5 injured Turkish soldiers.
