A large-scale ground operation may indeed be looming over Syria’s Greater Idlib, judging by recent Turkish reinforcements.

As a show of force, Ankara established another post in the terrorist-infested region.

Turkey has dozens of observation posts, but what makes this one special is that it is in the town of Afes in the southern Idlib countryside, only a few hundred meters away from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions in the town of Saraqib.

If they wanted, they could even throw stones at the Syrian troops.

In total, two battle tanks, four armored personnel carriers, three armored vehicles and about 50 troops were deployed in the post that oversees the Lattakia-Aleppo highway, the M4, and the Hama-Aleppo highway, the M5.

A recent report by the SANA confirmed the fact that was obvious for a while – the Turkish military deployed large reinforcements in Greater Idlib recently in order to impede any operation by the SAA and its allies, namely Russia.

Still, Syria is turning into a swamp for Ankara. On October 10th, two servicemen were killed and three Turkish-backed Syrian militants were wounded when their vehicles came under attack near the Syrian town of Marea. The attack was allegedly carried out by Kurdish forces, most likely the Afrin Liberation Force.

Just days earlier, on October 7th, a Turkish service member was killed in an attack that targeted a position he was manning near the village of al-Twais in the Aleppo countryside. On October 5th, an explosive device targeted a vehicle carrying Turkish officers in Greater Idlib.

Meanwhile, as Israel has done time and again – it carried out strikes at a time when developments in Syria were moving along quite well for the Damascus government.

Late on October 8th, 6 Israeli F-16 fighter jets fired 12 guided missiles at the T-4 air base in Homs province. Syrian service members were wounded in the attack.

Iranian-backed forces are known to be stationed in T4 air base. In 2019, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps moved its main weapons supply center in Syria from Damascus International Airport to the T-4 base.

Separately, in a promising sign of normalization, the UAE’s economy ministry said that a deal was signed with Syria on future plans to enhance economic cooperation and explore new sectors.

Initially, the UAE supported the so-called “moderate opposition” but as the Damascus government captured more than 90% of the country, they have switched their policy towards more acceptance of President Bashar al-Assad.

Quite a bit of progress has been made, despite all of the efforts by Turkey, Israel and the United States, among others attempting to stop it. The Damascus government is on the brink of controlling even more territory, following the successes in Daraa. Greater Idlib remains the last significant militant stronghold, and it appears that it’s only a matter of time until it is dealt with.

jens holm

I see no 90%. And where are the people. Well more then 1/3 is not even in the country and several milions are in internal refugee camps. Hardly none of them support Assads and probatly not the rest as well.

Thats nots 90% at all.

And do they control ??? Well look for Dara. They have military control. Well Syria should not be runned by militaries but civiles being producte ones supporting themself and the country.

How many millions feed the Syrians by UN, EU and Turkey – many and not Assads as well.

Chris Gr

I don’t support Assad I state that the UAE now support Assad.

farbat

Pseudo Hun you will lose

Solitario

They turkish orcs cant stop the offensive!!

jens holm

Its a political matter. If the Turks really went in to fight they could and would. Its about how much they dare.

jens holm

So far 7 sheep dont like facts. The only chance for Assads is to catch all the Jihadists and make forced recruitments :)

For integration the Tigers should have white helmets.

Cromwell

Well that new observation post can be the first one to be annihilated when the offensive starts.

jens holm

Sure. It can be the last one as well.

How’s the weather in london clown?

Icarus Tanović

It’s longdong.😉

jens holm

Muslims in England think Big Ben is a minarete. Ghandi told them. His first name was Muhammed or something…

Icarus Tanović

Zio-Danes in Muslim countries, say Iran think of minarets that are balistic missiles.

ATTILA

But but when ? Charlie boy

TEP

Unfortunately, despite the fact it is needed, it wont happen. Russia will not risk war with Turkey, and will advise Syria to avoid the same. The waiting game continues.
TEP.

the jimmy legs

so why has russia been intensely bombing idlib?

TEP

Turkey increased it’s armed forces presence in Idleb precisely to lessen the Russian strikes and also send a message that it will not allow a ground operation to remove either it’s mitary or it’s terrorist proxies.
TEP.

Cromwell

What the Turks think they can or can’t allow won’t come into it,they thought they couldn’t allow the town of Sarabiq to be taken by the SAA just before the so called ceasefire,it was,mistake was having a ceasefire to start with,the SAA were on a roll.

ATTILA

What Saa ? Iranian and hesbolla terrorist gangs Charlie boy

Cromwell

My name isn’t Charlie,you Charlie,the fact is the Turds and their terrorists boyfriends don’t have that town.

Chris Gr

There is SAA in fact. Iran and Hezbollah are mostly suplementary.

farbat

saa are syrian civilians with limited training limited support and limited equipment they still destroyed the daesh terrorist gang that you creatures created and they will soon destroy the terrorist gangs in idlib aswell which again you creatures created because you are mistaken in all matters you dont understand anything and that is why you will fall fast

farbat

only when you understand your enemy you will be atleast slightly able to defeat them and you dont understand anything so you are just idiots and tools

Old dog

HUMAN

“unhuman meat”

jens holm

Nato will help if someone enters their territory.

Christopher

Syria isn’t NATO territory.

Cromwell

Waiting for what?

TEP

Waiting for Turkey & US to give up on their increasingly costly (financial, resources & materials) occupation of Syrian territory and leave to focus on China.
TEP.

the jimmy legs
