Ahead of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Ibrahim Reisi in Tehran tomorrow, activity is increasing in Syria.

The US-based site Al Monitor reported that while Turkey’s possible Syria operation was on the agenda, the clashes in Idlib between the Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army and Heyeti Tahrir Damascus (HTS) organizations and the Russian-backed Syrian forces became more intense.

It was stated that the Syrian and Russian forces increased their air strikes in Idlib, and the opposition organizations targeted the Syrian government forces with bomb attacks.


Speaking to Al Monitor, Free Syrian Army commander Mustafa Bakur said that Russia’s increased air strikes in Idlib were linked to Turkey’s possible Syria operation. Arguing that Russia is trying to corner Turkey on the issue of Idlib, which is preparing for an operation in Syria by changing the balance in the region in its favor, Bakur said, “It is clear that Russia seeks to gain gains from Turkey in exchange for giving the green light to Turkey’s Syria operation. Iran has a similar orientation. Both sides are trying to send a message by putting pressure on the ground and increasing military activity in Idlib. Tensions could rise further in the coming weeks,” he said.

It has been on the agenda for a while that the soldiers of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad are making reinforcements to the regions close to the Turkish border.

On the other hand, the Syrian Democratic Forces, whose backbone is formed by the terrorist organizations PKK/PYD/YPG and relied on the USA, finally called for help to Russia. The leader of the terrorist organization, Mazlum Abdi, reproached Russia and accused it of not making sufficient moves and wanted it to be more active.

Russia, the USA and Iran had previously made statements against Turkey’s possible operation.
