BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Sunday that if Idlib becomes a “terrorist nest”, it is the Syrian government’s fault.

In addition to blaming them for the situation in Idlib, the Turkish Foreign Minister said that Russia and Turkey will work to stabilize the situation inside the demilitarized zone.

Under the deal, the demilitarized zone is supposed to be between 15-20 kilometers the front-lines of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish-backed rebels.

However, the rebels have refused to withdraw from the demilitarized zone and continued their attacks against the Syrian government forces in the Hama, Latakia, Aleppo, and Idlib provinces.

El responsable directo es Erdogan por suministrar armas, municiones y todo lo que se requiere para seguir cometiendo actos terroristas en territorio Sirio.

The Turkish Foreign Minister has been disingenous. Their FSA jihadis were in charge of large areas of Idlib in opposition to HTS. Instead of getting the local Arab tribes and Kurds on their side the FSA ethnically cleansed many of the locals, seized their land and goods, and replaced them with Turkmen. The fact that HTS has ousted the FSA is totally on Turkey’s watch.

Gosh, what an hypocrite! Turkey smuggled near half a million jihadi terrorists and mercenary rats to wreck havoc into Syria. If Idlib is a terrorist nest, Turkey is to be blamed over ANY other “actor”

Wow, just wow. The Syrian government has not been in control of Idlib since 2015 when they had to retreat due to man-power shortages. Turkey has been supplying these terrorists for years and had failed (or didn’t bother) to remove all the Jihadist elements in Idlib. Needless to say it is Turkey that is in Idlib and not the Syrian government. So how on Earth is Idlib becoming a “terrorist nest” the fault of the Syrian government? Turks are dogs, lower than dogs. In fact all 79.81 million Turks only make a single dog. Take that you filthy savage animal… Read more »
