Syria, Turkey tightens security in Idlib after the attack on the M4
Furthermore, Turkey is continuing to send military and means to Idlib. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), since March about 10,400 TAF elements have arrived in the country, spreading throughout the province and nearby Aleppo. Ankara, in fact, fears two possible scenarios: that HTS raises the level of confrontation or that the truce with Damascus fails. In the first case, it wants to be able to immediately press the jihadists, well rooted in the territory, before an asymmetric war begins in his area of influence and moreover near the border. In the second, it aims to be ready to restart the Spring Shield operation if the situation worsens. The two “enemies”, moreover, have signed a sort of mutual and temporary non-aggression pact in an anti-Turkey key. As a result, Ankara is doubly concerned.
