Al Idlibi: Turkey could lose all its cards in Idlib
Shemal Al-Democratic Brigade Commander General Abu Umer Al Idlibi stressed that if the Syrian regime forces clear Idlib of Turkish state backed gangs, Turkey could lose all its cards in occupied centers like Jarablus, Bab, Azaz and Afrin.
Shamal Al-Democratic Brigade Commander General Abu Umer Al Idlibi spoke to ANHA about Idlib and said it is too early to assess the developments to come in the city, and that they have information that along with various military forces, Turkish soldiers are also present in the region.
Al Idlibi said the gangs in Idlib are directly under the Turkish state and that they are constantly clashing among themselves: “The clashes among the gangs happen in accordance with Turkish state plans. They want to thus intimidate the locals and punish those who don’t comply with their rules.”
Abu Umer Al Idlibi said they foresee that Turkey will disband the gangs in case they come to an agreement with Russia: “If Turkey positions troops in Idlib, these gang groups could become security forces. Gang groups in Idlib truly have huge military power. If these gangs are provided with weapons, they could defeat the regime.”
Al Idlibi said the fate of occupied regions like Jarablus, Bab, Azaz and Afrin is tied to the fate of Idlib and added that if the regime takes Idlib, it would be a great blow to Turkey and Turkey could lose all its cards.
Shemal Al-Democratic Brigade Commander General Abu Umer Al Idlibi stated that Iran, Russia and Turkey failed to reach any results in the Tehran summit.
