Turkey, fearing a surprise offensive by the Syrian army (SAA) and pro-Iran militias, is strengthening its defenses south of Idlib. In the last few hours, the construction of a new base and some checkpoints east of Zawiya has been completed. In recent days, however, new TAF military posts had been established in AAfes, near Saraqeb, and along the M4. Finally, reinforcements of men and vehicles arrived and were deployed in various areas of the province. The whole maxi operation to seal the quadrant began after groups close to Tehran began to converge from the south of the Middle Eastern country and the SAA received additional forces on the border between Aleppo and Idlib. In fact, it seems that Damascus land maneuvers are imminent, to exploit the growing divisions between the local factions allied to Turkey.
