The militants foiled a truce in Idlib, the Syrian army opened fire

The militants of the Jebhat al-Nusra group * turned out to be the weakest link in the agreements between the presidents of Russia and Turkey on the introduction of a ceasefire in the Syrian province of Idlib.

According to the Syrian state news agency SANA, the terrorists attacked the positions of government forces in Khazarin and Dar el-Kabir.

In addition, drones were launched from the territory controlled by the militants, who tried to attack a number of objects of the Syrian army in Latakia and near the city of Jebl.

In response to the shelling, the SAA artillery attacked the positions of the militants, and the republic’s air defense destroyed the terrorist UAV.

According to information provided by Rear Admiral Oleg Zhuravlev, head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, 19 violations of the ceasefire by illegal armed groups were recorded.

The provocations on the part of the militants cast doubt on the possibility of starting joint patrolling by the military of the Russian Federation and Turkey on the M4 Aleppo-Latakia highway, which should begin on March 15.

The fact that the Jebhat al-Nusra and the gangs adjacent to it would not comply with any agreements was obvious from the very beginning, and Turkey would have to admit that a truce in Idlib is possible only if the terrorists are completely destroyed.

    And when they signed a truce with Turkey, didn’t they know about it? If only to sign something, and there the grass does not grow?

    We believe the word for gentlemen!

    As a result of these attacks, the Syrian army occupied two more villages and began to advance on the southern sector of the front. Turkish troops have not yet been marked in battles, but three columns of Turkish troops have entered Idlib over the past day. The grouping of Turkish troops in Idlib (according to Western data) increased from the equivalent of one division to two divisions with reinforcements.
    The militants did not sign the agreement and did not intend to comply with it. So: "Yes, they knew."
