Idlib - SMART

On Saturday, the Syrian Liberation Front (NLF) confirmed starting the process of handing over heavy weapons from the perimeter of the Idlib governorate in accordance with the Turkish-Russian agreement about establishing a demilitarized zone.

Captain Naji Mustafa, the NLF spokesman, reported that they started handing over heavy weapons from the demilitarized zone in coordination with the Turkish party, as agreed between Russian and Turkey.

Mustafa added that NLF fighters will remain in their bases with light and medium weapons and sustain their defense lines in the area, in case of emergency.

Mustafa emphasized that they keep most of their heavy weapons outside the demilitarized zone, in their backline bases. Mustafa added that Turkey will reinforce their observations bases in the demilitarized area in order to block potential breaches by the Syrian government forces.

Mustafa said that the process of handing over heavy weapons will go through many stages, but he did not give details or deadlines.

Other opposition factions operating in Northern Syria also started handing over military equipment from the demilitarized zone on the Idlib governorate perimeter. The zone included the areas of Jisr al-Shughur in Western Idlib, the al-Turkman Mountain in the Latakia countryside, the Abu al-Duhur area in the Eastern Idlib countryside, and the al-Ghab Plain in the Northern Hama countryside.

Earlier, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) confirmed that it will not allow Russia to patrol the FSA's areas in the demilitarized zone in Northern Syria, which was agreed upon by Russia and Turkey.

On Sept. 17, 2018, the Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, reached an agreement to establish a demilitarized zone in the Idlib governorate.
