A ceasefire in Idlib for 24 hours, means that everything remains the same and the Turkish terrorists, ISIS, ALQAEDA can continue killing the Syrian people. With this shameful agreement, Turkish terrorists remain in Syria and can continue to move military equipment within Syria.

This verifies, no matter the extremist group you’re talking about!
By accepting a ceasefire again, Russia will just break the momentum. We’re on for one more year of war!

I will trust Putin, sure that he knows very well what he is doing by agreeing with an evil being, as distrustful and treacherous as Erdogan, who, as always, will only use that ceasefire to resupply his terrorists and continue to arm them to the tooth .
And once the Turkish puppets are in condition, we will see another powerful attempt to retake all the strategic territory lost so far, taking SAA by surprise, in full ceasefire.
But I’m sure Russia will be ready and waiting for them too.

Well, here we go again with Mr Er_dog_an. For sure, Turkey support to terrorists will not end, even worst, the supply of advance weapons to terrorists has already started by Turkey.
Let us see how the genocide (Armenian) country behave now. It looks like Russian tolerance is very far away.

Indignarte o verguenza ajena, dicen alto al fuego sin consultar al gobierno Sirio, afirman alto al fuego sin embargo Turquía y sus mercenarios siguen atacando Saraqib….
Los ataques Rusos parecen ser solo disuasivo para los terroristas, nunca aniquila a todo el grupo de terroristas cuando se desplazan.
Rusia como siempre complaciendo a Erdogan y este aprovechará para aprovisionar a sus mercenarios, ¿Por qué no cortan la carretera al norte de Idlib, ¿Por qué no timan el pueblo de Sarmadá?…

I agree that air strikes are the one main determent. Assad is not upset with ceasefire. Syria can also use this 10 days to resupply and re-enforce troops without drone strikes. Syria priority is the M4. Should Turks have not aided then Idlib would have been liberated.
