BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The Russian Armed Forces have given the militants in Idlib until the end of March to withdraw from all areas around the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway), Syrian military media reported on Tuesday.

According to the reports, all militants group, including the Turkish-backed forces, must withdraw from the M-4 Highway and its surroundings.

If the militant forces do not withdraw from the M-4 Highway, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside the Russian military, will resume their offensive in the Idlib Governorate.

Given the recent build up of Syrian Army troops in southern Idlib, it appears that they will be focusing on the two strategic cities of Jisr Al-Shughour and Ariha, which are both located along the M-4 Highway.

The jihadist rebels from the Incite the Believers coalition have already rejected the Moscow agreement that called for the immediate withdrawal of all militant forces.

So the likelihood of the militant forces withdrawing from the M-4 Highway by the end of March is not going to happen.

This is more a warning to Turkey to carry out their side of the bargain of separating out the al Nusra/HTS banned jihadis from the usual Syrian rebels which they should have been doing these past 2 years.
if the Turks do nothing then Russians with the help of the SAA will go after these reprobate jihadis and the latter pair will eventually control the M4. Over to you, Erdogan…..

Well, the vile two bits “sultan” faces the issues of all the mofos who backed extremists to achieve grim political aims : he can’t control them, just like the Weimar Republik couldn’t control a group accustomed with wearing brown shirts and there are many other cases like these in history… And guess what? Putin knew it’d happen this way, because it ALWAYS happens this way with extremists… Erdog has simply been outsmarted by Putin and screwed by what he signed, just like when Lavrov pushed John Kerry into accepting to separate “moderate rebels” from terrorists… Huhu, there are no “moderate… Read more »

Rusia debe exigir al gobierno Turco que cumpla con el acuerdo de retirar a sus mercenarios de la zona de manera pública.
