This is coolbert:
Troops are massing. Troops are always massing.
This is the final show-down? The end-game? The OK Corral Syrian style. Fill your hand.
The Syrian Civil War coming to a climactic end and soon? Idlib and the destruction of the last rebel faction/factions as in opposition to the despot Assad now at hand?
From the outstanding Internet web site South Front:
1. "In Maps: Possible Scenario Of Syrian Army Advance In Idlib"
pro-government sources speculate that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and
its allies may soon launch a military operation against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham [HST] (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in the so-called Idlib de-escalation zone soon."
2. "Syria Map Update: Military Situation In Northern Hama, Southern Idlib"
"The military situation in northern Hama and southern Idlib remains complicates as both sides – the Syrina Army and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham [HST] (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) are preparing for full-scale clashes there."
"According to the UN, there are currently about 10,000 members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other al-Qaeda-linked factions in the province of Idlib. All of them as well as members of their allied militant groups are deeply concerned by the expected Syrian Army advance in the area."
Soon as the softening-up process has already begun with bombardment by Russian warplanes?
That South Front web site very slick and well done. And please donate. More to follow!
