The Syrian Arab Army inside of Khan Sheikhoun after declaring full control over the city on Thursday, August 22nd, 2019.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – A senior Syrian legislator said this week that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has in his recent visit to Russia made big compromises over Idlib.

Safwan al-Qorbi, the representative for the Idlib Governorate in the Syrian parliament, told the Arabic-language Al-Watan newspaper on Monday that Erdogan is in a bottleneck politically on the situation of Idlib.

He underlined Russia’s role in harnessing Turkey’s uncontrollable performance in Idlib, and said the Turkish convoys were attacked in the countryside of Idlib and the residents of these regions blame the militant groups and Ankara for their dire conditions.

Al-Qorbi referred to Erdogan’s recent visit to Moscow, and said, “Certainly, the Turkish President has made big compromises and it was a hasty meeting to decrease the fire of the Syrian Army attacks. They thought that taking back certain regions in Idlib needs one month in practice but the Syrian Army liberated it within days.”

Hence, Turkey began to panic that if it doesn’t make major compromises, Idlib would soon be captured altogether by the Syrian Army, he added.

Relevant reports said on Sunday that Ankara had promised Moscow to dissolve Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and return to the Sochi Agreement that was established on September 17th, 2018.

Al-Watan newspaper quoted sources close to the National Liberation Front and Tahrir al-Sham as saying that Erdogan has in a recent meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin vowed to dissolve Tahrir al-Sham and other affiliated terrorist groups, including Hurras al-Din and Ansar al-Tawhid, within 8 days.

They said that the ceasefire declared by the Syrian Army on Saturday was also in line with the agreement, adding that one of the conditions demanded by Syria was its army’s control over a vast area of Hama-Idlib international road.

The sources underlined possible opposition of Tahrir al-Sham to Turkey’s agreement with Russia, saying that based on the agreement, in case of Ankara’s inability to implement its promises, the Russian and Syrian armies will resume their military operations towards the towns of Ma’arat al-No’eman and Saraqib on Hama-Idlib international road.

The Arabic-language SANA news agency quoted a battlefield source as saying that the Syrian Army has declared implementation of truce in the demilitarized zone while reiterating that it will respond to any violation of ceasefire by the terrorists.

Si Rusia quiere paz para Siria, lo menos que puede pedir a Erdogan es, que se lleve a sus mercenarios del territorio Sirio a su casa Turquía.

Any way, Turkey is not in control of HTS=Qaeda.
Putin perfectly knows it.
He already did the same game with Kerry about separating the “moderate rebels” and he perfectly knew US had no influence on these.
You’d need to call Doha for this and Doha will put some plausible deniabiity out of its trick bag or will buy 36 F-15 or 24 Typhoon they don’t need… Maybe Putin can sell 36 Su-35 to them?

LOL. I doubt that the HTS and other Jihadi obey their Sultan’s order to dissolve peacefully.

Tactical victory for the Czar who will take the appropriate steps to dissolve them un-peacefully.

Precisely. Thise iskamist Zealots will simply never acceot anything other than the benow two outcomes : 1 – surrender of the infidel enemy :not going to happen sonce those same infidels happen to be on quite a roll. 2 – Fight to the death in order to secure their Premium ticket to Heaven and its 70 virgins option : let’s help them big time in that regard by killing them faster and in greater numbers. The sultan dog once thought he could control those hordes that are politically close to his AKP party’s ideology,but it seems key decision-making folks high… Read more »

@ Stern; Yes and now the terrorists have attacked the Hmeim airbase again, the Czar has a legitimate reason to dispose of them.

+++ “has a legitimate reason to dispose of them”
=> There is no need for any legitimate reason. He can trample them underfoot without any more “reason” than the fact they are enemies, and even more in the case of Russia which has a permanent seat at the UNSC, in other terms, is technically above international laws, thanks to the veto-right.

@death2, that is the US Emperor not the Czar’s style. A true Czar will use diplomacy and agreements to justify the attacks.

Stern : these ones are on Qatari payroll, and Tsar Vlad perfectly knows it.
Turkey received billions of $ in Qatari financial help a few months ago to avoid economical collapse, Erdog will go on providing them weapons/ammos transfers and supplies as long as Doha will pay.

He has already signed too many checks Turkey can’t cash.
Even Russian sanctions would hurt, as US+EU ones.
Moreover, Erdogan fired more than 300 F-16 pilots including flight instructors.If he has numbers of jet-fighters, he can only rely on a fraction of these. Most of the competent general have been fired too…

Si Rusia quiere paz en Siria, lo mas saludable es pedir a Erdogan que saque a los mercenarios al territorio Turco.

Turkey promising to dissolve HTS only prooves what has been said a long time. HTS is a turkish proxy. One can only make such an agreement when one has a deciding voice within HTS councils. If they fail to deliver, not unlikely, they will be shown as liars, again, and Russia will operate in that case totally bypassing Turkey.
