Just a pic of #Jihadi #HTS militants standing on the #SyrianRevolution flag. The revolution failed in #Idlib. #Terrorists stay in control of the province.
#HTS-#Ahrar_al_Sham (AaSh) agreement:
- AaSh pass #Ghab valley, surrounding mountains and towns to HTS
- AaSh pass all heavy weapons to HTS, leave small arms only
- AaSh pass all HQ to HTS, than disband
- HTS pursue no one, let people go and stay if necessary

There is sooo much Turkish armor and heavy weapons inside Idlib now it is difficult to quantify. They have also parked them right along the front lines where the Syrian army plans to assault first. Certainly this has caused them to have to rethink their strategy.
So NATO took East Syria for its European and American hegemony, but it seems to me Erdogan plans on taking Idlib for Turkey itself. Well Russia got Crimea, East Ukraine, and Abkhazia and South Ossetia since 2009. I guess we are all just adding land to our empires again. And who said colonialism is dead?
Donald Trump has warned its NATO ally to beware of the devastative wrath of US economic pressure if Turkey dares to attack the Kurdish allies America is leaving behind in its “long overdue” pull-out of troops from Syria.
The US military, Trump promised, will still use an “existing nearby base,” apparently in Iraq, to attack the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants if the terrorist organization re-emerges in Syria. Using his typical mode of communication to reaffirm the withdrawal of American troops from the ground, the US president warned Ankara against seeing this as an opportunity to stage any military campaign against Syrian Kurds.
“Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds,” Trump tweeted, urging Ankara to create a “20-mile safe zone.”
Turkey, however, remains firmly committed to removing what they call a Kurdish “terrorist” threat coming from the Euphrates River valley, and is actively preparing for a possible cross-border operation. “Our preparation continues intensely,” the Turkish defense minister said Friday.
