Any possible military operation in Syria’s Idlib would be disastrous, Turkey’s Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said as quoted by the Anadolu news agency, adding that Turkey was working alongside Russia and Iran to avoid the crisis.

While the Syrian authorities have managed to regain control over most of the country’s territories after several years of fighting against terrorists and opposition groups, the Idlib de-escalation zone remains a stronghold of the insurgents and extremists in Syria.

On August 25, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry said that terrorists were planning to stage a false-flag chemical attack in Idlib in order to pave the way for Western countries’ attacks against Syrian government forces.
