The Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that gathering the military factions in Idlib; Northern Syria will facilitate the Government Forces’ mission. Assad added in an interview with Russia Today that the government’s plan consisted of gathering the armed persons in one or two areas, to make it easier to fight them. He said, “they choose to go to Idlib, but this is better for us from a military perspective.” then he added, “they planned to distract the government which forced the military units to spread everywhere. It is not good for any army. We planned to gather them in one place.”

Assad claimed that the government did not force the factions to head toward Idlib and that it was their choice.

Activists accuse the Syrian government of gathering the displaced fighters and civilians in Idlib to launch a massive military campaign against them, to defeat them and the opposition movement.

Over the past years, the Syrian government has displaced hundreds of thousands of civilians and militants from Southern and Central Syria and Aleppo. The displacements took place after military campaigns, supported by Russia. The government used all kinds of weapons, including chemicals. The attacks killed and injured thousands, in addition to destroying the infrastructure. Most of the displaced people chose to go to Idlib or the suburbs of Aleppo.

Assad affirmed that the Syrian government would seize the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF)-controlled areas, which is supported by the U.S.

The Syrian government stated that they started negotiating with the SDF. assad added, “this is the first option, if it did not succeed, we will liberate these areas with force [...] the Americans should leave, and they will.”

The SDF, affiliated with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, control large areas in Northern and Eastern Syria. U.S. troops station in the SDF-controlled regions as well.
