Note, that this is not the first case of sending weapons in Idlib by the Turkish army. Previously, such information provided various Turkish media. Besides, representatives of the Russian Ministry of Defense published in the web video with drones, proving the shipment of military equipment Ankara Syrian Idlib.
Expected, Turkish armored vehicles that will be transferred to the position of terrorists in Idlib, against which the Syrian government forces conduct military operations.
Antiterrorist operation in Greater Idlib
Units of the Syrian Arab Army (Farm) now conduct the operation «Zarya in Idlib» against terrorists in the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo. The military operation was resumed 16 January after the conclusion of ceasefire agreements 12 January against the background of numerous attacks by terrorist units.

Remains a threat in the Big Idlib
At present several gangs of militants present in the region, which are actually the puppets of Turkey and receive significant assistance from Ankara. First of all, it should be noted the structure of "Hayat Tahrir al-Sham", led by former members of the banned in the Russian Federation "Dzhebhat en-Nusra" 1. In fact, the organization is a kind of a bunch of different small groups, Having joined the "en-Nusra".
Besides, a threat to the civilian population are militants of the operational staff "Va parrotfish al-Momineen" – Syrian branch of the banned in the Russian Federation "Al-Qaeda" 1. Also, there are pro-Turkish militants from the "Al-Watani Dzhebhat poured Tahrir", directly dependent on Ankara.
Despite the different names, Adventure all of these groups are one and the same criminal methods: rob and kill the local population, not agreeing to any agreement with the official Damascus.
Followed by Turkey in the north-west Syria
Russia and Turkey during the talks in September 2018 in Sochi have agreed on the establishment of a demilitarized zone in Idlib. Within the framework of agreements, the main transport arteries of the region - the road M4 and M5 - had to pass under the control of the Syrian government. Turkey also committed itself to distinguish fighters from different armed groups and ensure the observance of the armistice, but in reality, Ankara decided to ignore it all.
Instead of working to stabilize the situation in Idlib and Aleppo, Turkey only, aids and encourages militant actions, providing both military, and information support to terrorists. Ankara is trying to give radical Islamists for some "moderate opposition", counting, that all these pro-Turkish jihadists continue to have to be in control of the north-west Syria.
Yesterday the new negotiations between Russia took place in Moscow and Turkey on the situation in Idlib, which was attended by diplomats, military officials and intelligence agencies. Arrange for another meeting failed and the parties have decided to hold a second round today.
The second meeting lasted about two hours. Among the most important figures in the negotiations can be noted Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal, Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Vershinin and Special Presidential Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev. As it appears, Today's talks also failed to seriously change the situation. Russian Foreign Ministry said, Russia and Turkey on the basis of consultations confirmed the commitment to existing agreements on Syria. The Turkish delegation also left Moscow without official statements.
However, Representative Party of Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan He stated, Ankara at the talks in Moscow issued a readiness position yourself to achieve withdrawal of the Syrian army to their former positions, that as voiced at yesterday's meeting. Russia also support such a step does not become, opposing, Seeing the need to fight the terrorists in Idlib.
Federal News Agency discussed Russian-Turkish talks on Idlib from the head of the Department of Political Science and Sociology REU them. gv. Plekhanov, expert of the Association of Military Political Scientists Andrey Koshkin.
According to Cat, Now we are witnessing a complex process, which have emerged in the Middle East, when we faced official position of Damascus and Ankara's regional interests. Turkey has seen its opinion on the situation in Idlib, which is tied to the national interest. Therefore, we see the accusations against Moscow, because Turkey believes, that Russia has allegedly put pressure on Damascus and to avoid dealing with terrorists, which are connected with Turkey.
According to the analyst, Negotiations between the parties are really needed, and taking into account the number of links, both at the level of Heads of State, as between diplomats and military, eventually all can lead to good result. But at the same time, it depends on Turkey's tense situation in Idlib, which is now satisfied with Ankara.
"The worsening situation in Idlib generated by Turkey. It causes fear to destroy the possibility of more, what has been achieved great difficulty. Of course, I would like to hope, that there are no "red lines" would not be covered. In addition, the military conflict with the direct participation of Turkey is not in favor of Erdogan ', - says Koshin.
Founded in Syria task now is to sweep the country, including Idlib, the remaining elements of terrorist. But now to the fore in Turkey goes an attempt to transfer its interests in northern Syria in the civilized, but at the same time, Erdogan is trying to show, that he was ready to use force.
Power variant of the decision situation in Idlib
Cat draws attention, Turkey that sending their weapons in Idlib, certainly, is an attempt to pressure especially on Syria. but, since Erdogan closely links Damascus with Moscow, in this case there is an attempt and the impact on our country, especially against the background of the negotiations.
"Erdogan wants to show, that his acts decisively, and aspirations will be realized. Turkish President demonstrates redeployment of armored vehicles and personnel, that he is ready to the forceful solution of the situation in Idlib ", - says political scientist.
The terrorists do not want peace
Most of Idlib area is under the control of terrorist groups, who are interested in preserving their order in the occupied lands. And to save their territories, they hide behind Turkey.
"Terrorists are using a line of observation in Turkey in, which are located in Idlib, for his defense. But at the same time, Turkish technology transfer in the area indicates the escalation of tensions with Ankara. Especially considering Turkey's statements, Idlib that is their area ", - draws the attention of the interlocutor FAN.
Turkey uses Idlib to "store" their proxy forces in the form of terrorist groups, that Ankara intends to use not only in Syria, but also other conflicts. Trying equidistant from the other countries and show their independence, Erdogan holds such an aggressive policy, He thinks Cat.
