A military commander expects an escalation in Idlib

The commander of the Northern Democratic Forces, Abu Omar al-Idlibi, expected a military escalation in the province of Idlib after the tripartite summit, which gathered "the guarantors of Astana" in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

On September 16, Ankara hosted a tripartite summit of presidents of Russia, Iran, and Turkey in search of new deals on Syria.

Despite the allegations of the three countries seeking a solution for the crisis of Idlib in northwestern Syria and other problems in Syria, escalation is still ongoing on the ground.

"The Syrian scene has been complicating since the beginning of the civil war in mid-March 2001," said al-Idlibi.

Regarding the tripartite summit in Ankara and its impact on the situation in Idlib, al-Idlibi added, "What happened and what is going on around Idlib after the tripartite summit suggests a military escalation in which the interests of the Iranian-Russian Astana axis will be shared which is not the center of a realization of demands in Syria.

The Russian state under President Putin was trying to return as a country that was one of the world's poles with America before the collapse of the Soviet Union, and that was in Syria.

 This is reflected in Russia's unchanged position: the return of Syria as a whole geographically, politically and militarily as it was before the outbreak of the Syrian revolution into the Syrian regime, but with new amendments of political reform.

As for Iran, al-Idlibi said, "regarding the Iranian role, which is as a state depends on the deployment of factions loyal to it in Syria, and this has become a policy followed also in Iraq and Lebanon and makes this issue a very important and effective bargaining card on the table of the nuclear file with the major powers in the country, and would take advantage of any opportunity to expand its influence in Idlib."

Al-Idlibi said, "the most damaging and difficult thing is the Turkish intervention in Syria, and the presence of the Justice and Development Party at the helm of the Turkish government, which is part of the network of Muslim Brotherhood parties spreading in the Middle East, such as deadly cancer."

"This is added to the loyalty of Turkey's armed and political opposition factions in full. Therefore, Idlib seems to be a coveted aspirant of the big powers, because the European Union and the United States are opposed to the military resolution in Idlib because of the waves of displaced people, in addition to the Syrian regime's control of Idlib will make it able to evade the implementation of the outcome of the international political solution to Syria No 2254 ," al-Idlibi said in the same context.

Al-Idlibi said, "but the Turkish president has created a way out to the issue of the displaced Syrians from Idlib by diverting their destination to northeastern Syria instead of Europe under a humanitarian name that Turkey called the safe area to settle Syrians on their lands as happened in Afrin  in a suspicious and criminal deal between the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus and Afrin, Turkey wants to repeat this crime in Idlib deal by occupying the border strip in the north-east of Syria."

In another context, despite the announcement of the formation of the Syrian Constitutional Commission by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the commander of the Northern Democratic Forces said, "facts on the ground are contrary to the reality of what is happening at the United Nations on the Syrian issue and statements by UN officials on the approach of the Syrian."
