Erdogan says Turkey working with Syria rebels to implement Idlib accord

"Today a landmark operation is underway in Idlib, and it will continue", Erdogan said at the ruling Justice and Development Party's meeting in Turkey's western province of Afyonkarahisar.

In another front, Syria's army and its allies have encircled Islamic State in the city of al-Mayadin, southeast of Deir al-Zor, in eastern Syria, a Syrian military source said yesterday.

Turkey boosted its military presence along its border with Syria after agreeing with Russian Federation and Iran to work towards a cease-fire in the region. "They are waiting to enter", said the commander, who did not want to be named for security reasons.

In the same context, the Turkish army deployed a large number of special forces and armored military vehicles, which were sent over the past week to the town of Reyhanlı, a town and district of Hatay Province, on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, near the country's border with Syria.

Turkey has been amassing troops on the border to support the effort, with several of its top generals inspecting the preparations, the military said.

Idlib is the last remaining area in northern Syria where anti-Assad rebel groups have a foothold.

Under pressure and increasingly weak, most rebel groups have acquiesced to the ceasefire zones, but Tahrir Al Sham fiercely opposes it. FSA and HTS oppose the Assad regime, but are also battling each another for control of Idlib.

"We will absolutely not allow the creation of a terror corridor along our borders", said Erdogan in his speech. He said the plan is to also foil "foreign projects" that aim to occupy the north of Syria under the pretext of fighting terrorism, in an apparent reference to the US -backed Kurdish forces. "The news is what you see, not what you hear", said an HTS statement published on the group's Telegram channel.

Many Syrians had fled to Idlib from the neighbouring Aleppo province, which was rocked by heavy fighting a year ago, and Turkey meant to support them, Erdoğan said.

The illegitimate referendum saw Iraqis in KRG-controlled areas - and in a handful of territories disputed between Erbil and Baghdad, including ethnically mixed Kirkuk and Mosul - vote on whether or not to declare independence.

Despite months of relative calm in Idlib, Syrian regime and Russian forces have in recent weeks carried out air raids across the province, killing dozens of civilians, according to the Observatory. They murdered our children in the past.

Erdogan said that many Syrians had fled to Idlib from the neighbouring Aleppo province, which was rocked by heavy fighting previous year, and Turkey was not going to let them down.

Erdogan said that many Syrians had fled to Idlib from Aleppo. Solid steps will be taken in the coming days following discussions between the parties this week, Ibrahim Kalin, spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, told state-run TRT television on Thursday.
