Something seems to be quietly going on in that nest of vipers in Syria’s north-west.
UK diplomats are negotiating with Russian diplomats to arrange passage for their military advisers and trainers to the terrorist militants operating in the Idlib area to leave the country. Another open admission by the British that they support al-Qaeda terrorists.
Kurdish elements are claiming kills up near the Turkish border close to Azaz – where they are not previously known to be. Of course theirs is a separate battle with Turkish backed militants.
Syrian government forces are now apparently operating deep behind previously known front lines to the east of Maarrat al-Numan on the M5 and the Russians are intensifying bombing strikes to the west of that city. I think we will soon see Maarrat al-Numan liberated by SAA forces, which would dramatically shorten the front lines for the government troops by forcing a withdrawal of all militants northwards and isolating a further number of Turkish observation posts in the cleared areas.
It looks like the days for al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria are coming to an end, sending another wave of terrorist imports back to their own countries.
It can’t come soon enough.
