BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham area preparing to launch a new offensive against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northwestern Syria, Russia’s Sputnik News reported on Wednesday.

Citing Syrian military expert Colonel Mur’ai Hamdan, Sputnik reported that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is in control of at least 70 percent of the towns and villages in the Idlib province.

Hamdan said that Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham is preparing to launch a full-scale offensive against the Russian and Syrian armies soon.

He said their unwillingness to adhere to the Sochi agreement of September 17th raised red flags in Damascus because it indicated that they are not interested in any peace measures.

The former Syrian Army officer continued that the military has so far repelled all attacks by the jihadist rebels on their positions in the demilitarized zone, adding that they have inflicted heavy damages on the HTS attackers.

The Syrian military has been mobilizing their forces in northwestern Syria and sending reinforcements to the Hama, Latakia, Idlib, and Aleppo fronts on a daily basis.

Of course that the terrorists will lunch over and over attacks, and over and over an offensive as far as terrorists exist in Syria land. Terrorists are paid to cause destruction in Syria, not for looking for peace. Russia-Turkey agreement help terrorists a lot to have better preparation, getting better weapons, making offensives, and building better defense.
