Idlib - SMART

On Sunday, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stated that the Russian-Turkish agreement on the Idlib governorate, Northern Syria, is a temporary procedure; however, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) considered Assad’s statements hollow.

Assad added during a meeting of the Central Committee of the al-Baath Party that  the Syrian government forces will reseize Idlib and other areas controlled by the FSA and Islamist battalions. Assad noted that the Syrian government forces gained the most ground from the agreement.

Captain Abdulsalam Abdulrazak, a commander of the National Liberation Front (NLF) stated that Assad’s statements are hollow and not those of a president.

Abdulrazak added that although Assad did not attend the Russian-Turkish agreement, he continues to tell the Syrian government forces and its supporters that he is still president. Abdulrazak noted that the agreement is a prelude to a political solution in Syria.

Abdulrazak added that the Syrian government forces and Iran will not commit to the agreement and will attempt to advance or seize areas when possible. Abdulrazak confirmed that  the NLF raised the alert and are ready to repel a potential attack.

Assad delivered his statements as the opposition military factions in Northern Syria started to transport their heavy weapons from the demilitarized area on the perimeter of the Idlib governorate. The factions withdrew heavy weapons from outposts in the Jisr al-Shughur area, Western Idlib, the al-Turkuman mountainous area in the Latakia countryside, the Abu al-Duhur area in the Eastern Idlib countryside, and the al-Ghab Plain area in the Northern Hama countryside.

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