The Syrian Observatory published yesterday, Friday, that contact areas and the regime forces’ controlled areas in Lattakia Mountains and both Hama and Idlib countryside, are witnessing bringing of more military reinforcements by the regime forces to them, including vehicles, tanks, soldiers carriers and members of the 4th Division and of the Palestinian Brigade of al-Quds, as a part of the preparations for the grand battle of Idlib in the case that Turkey can not accomplish its promises to Russia to end the presence of the Jihadist groups in Idlib. On the other hand and in the same context, the National Liberation Front which includes several military factions the most prominent of which is Ahrar Al-Sham, issued a statement through which it confirmed that it is ready for any possible attack by the regime forces and gunmen loyal to them on Idlib province, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published hours ago, that it monitored a column of military vehicles of the regime forces at the highway of al-Suqaylabiyah – Muhradah north of Hama, which comes within the context of military reinforcements brought by the regime forces to the area, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published Friday morning that regime forces continue to bring military reinforcements from various Syrian areas towards the points of contact in Idlib, as part from regime forces’ mobilization in the area for a possible early start of an attack on Idlib province north of Syria, and in the details monitored by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: the regime forces brought hundreds of fighters from the Eastern Ghouta like al-Marj area and others to Idlib city fronts, and among the members brought by the regime forces there are a large number of faction fighters who carried out “settlements and reconciliations” with the regime forces to join them and fight with them side by side. And in Idlib which is under the control of the rebel and Islamic factions; more than 500 fighters of the Eastern Ghouta and Jobar neighbourhood who rejected the Ghouta displacement agreement, were displaced to Idlib and joined Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham and other factions in the area, where now fighters of the Eastern Ghouta are going to be face to face in the coming battle of Idlib also arch rivals, after they fought against the regime together in battles of Jobar and the Eastern Ghouta, before the regime forces and their allies control the cities and towns of the Eastern Ghouta completely, and ended the presence of the factions there.
