BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham has formally rejected the ceasefire that was announced earlier today in the northwestern region of Syria.

In a statement released this afternoon, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham said they reject any ceasefire with the Syrian and Russian armed forces, vowing to keep fighting them in northwestern Syria.

Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham is one of the largest rebel groups in Syria; they make up a large portion of the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front.

Despite Ahrar Al-Sham’s rejection, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has not launched an attack in northwestern Syria today.

The Syrian military has also halted their airstrikes over the Idlib and Hama governorates in order to adhere to the ceasefire that was brokered by the Russian Armed Forces.

Nobody is surprised about this, even Russia. Then, why is Putin continue with the game with Turkey to make ceasefire agreements ? Russia must stop pleasing Turkey.

So concentrate all SAA and NDF have on attacking these jihadis. SAA has three days to do so. HTS managed in several days early januari. Surely SAA can too. If not, they might as well retreat.

Yup. Such GEAT opportunity shall be seized! Concentrating all the might on them alone would allow to do interesting scores and it’s more easy to fight a single faction at once. Best way to advance the reconquista.

Think so too. But it seems the cease fire is not followed by more factions. Still SAA might consider taking out complete factions that are concentrated. It might force some of these factions out of the fight.
