Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday Turkey will deploy troops in Syria’s northern Idlib region as part of a so-called de-escalation agreement brokered by Russia last month.
The issue of troops in Idlib will be voted in the Turkish Parliament today, after which the Turkish army will start operations in the border area to oust “Al-Nusra”.
Judging by the nature of the events, the preparation of the insurgents’ attack was revealed in advance, which led to effective countermeasures, which led to the failure of the offensive in such a short time. A striking contrast with the March events in Northern Hama. By the evening of September 20, according to Syrian sources, the militants were driven out of those areas that they managed to occupy at the cost of large losses, and now the issue of the counteroffensive of the SAA towards Murak is on the agenda in order to take advantage of the consequences of the unsuccessful offensive by militants.
To the North of the city of SAA has broken the resistance of the militants in Ayyash district, and is developing a successful offensive along the road leading to Madan, which is cut off from the main territory of the Caliphate.

In my opinion, the decision on the five regions gives us a partial solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. And the resolution of the Karabakh problem strengthens the positions of states, and not only Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia, but also Turkey, creates a system for a balanced and balanced model of geopolitical stability and security in the South Caucasus, and accordingly, freedom of action for “chaos sellers” is reduced. That is, in fact, the model of geopolitical coexistence between Russia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Armenia and Iran is disadvantageous only to those who are not on this list. We, as neighbors, can not get anywhere from each other. And we will always live in the same space
Azerbaijan during the reign of Ilham Aliyev became a full-fledged, strong, wealthy and established sovereign state. This is a rare case among the states of the post-Soviet space, since not all have managed to cope with the fact that they truly ensure the sovereignty and development of their own country.
The correspondent of the Federal news Agency (FAN) located in the province of Deir ez-Zor, where Southeast from the city was boosted by the Euphrates river. The forces of the Syrian Arab army (SAA) under the guidance of Russian advisers and the active support of videoconferencing crossed the Euphrates last night.
Russian combat aircraft in Syria launched surgical strikes, the U.S. was informed in advance about the limits of military operations in the city of Deir ez-Zor, said on Sunday the official representative of the defense Ministry major-General Igor Konashenkov.
A visual map illustrating one of the reasons for the race in the province of Deir ez-Zor. Major deposits of oil are still on the territory controlled by the Caliphate and it is the desire to control it that is behind the increased competition between the SAA and the SDF, although of course this problem is not exhausted.
The Russian foreign Ministry said that the SAA was able to cross the Euphrates near Deir ez-Zor, the true place of crossing was not specified. Also, it is claimed that the Northern Bank of the Euphrates created a springboard.
SDF operations to the North of Deir-ez-Zor demonstrate that the Kurds are for the United States is the main bet in the ongoing war. While there is the factor of ISIS, the United States remains able under this pretext to support the Kurds, at least until the moment when finally taken Raqqa (probably by the end of autumn, plus or minus a month) and the liberated territory to the North of the Euphrates.
The Russian General staff about the operation of unblocking Deir ez-Zor. It is worth noting that the operation was designed jointly by Russian and Syrian military. However, the high pace of operations in Eastern and Central Syria and more educated punches (compared to the campaigns of 2014-2015) to bypass and encircle the enemy, has long pointed to the fact that the specialists of the General staff are firmly are assisting the Syrian military. Hence increased speed of operations and reducing the effectiveness of enemy countermeasures.
The Syrian authorities have notified the United Nations of breaking the siege of Deir ez-Zor, besieged by militants from the terrorist group Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) since the summer of 2014.
Russia, the United States and Jordan have reached an agreement which will allow the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to take over control of virtually all of militant-held southern Syria with the exception of a Coalition-occupied base near the Iraqi border.
In the afternoon, advance elements of the 17th division, special forces “Tiger” backed by tanks and led by a demining machine were able to walk to the base of the 137th brigade, where they met with its defenders. The attempt of ISIS to counterattack in the region of the oil fields in al – Mazra (South-West base of the 137th brigade.) failed.
On the morning of 5 September the main forces of the Northern group of the SAA has closed the last 2 kilometers to the positions of the SAA in the area of 137th base and now officially confirm the release of the enclave, although the special forces arrived 2 days ago, and already started celebrating. In this case, as previously, the town itself is largely under the control of the Caliphate and his release remains a separate and very difficult task. Also not yet released is the airfield.
Attempts of militants to counter-attack from the South-East were repulsed, and the SAA, in turn, consolidated control over the villages located near the road Palmyra-Sukhna-Deir-ez-Zor.
The Garrison of the enclave for the last few hours has strengthened its position in the cemetery and the hospital. The Syrian Army went on the offensive this morning, as well as VKS continued airstrikes in the area of “Panorama” and the cemetery dividing the enclave into 2 parts.
This is a very symbolic day for the Syrian war. The garrison repelled dozens of attacks and assaults, even being in split into two parts, besieged, deprived of a full supply, and yet confounded all the skeptics waiting for reinforcements.
Of course, this is only the formal access to the base. Need to tighten up supply, you need to connect with a garrison cut off of from the air base. You need to clear the areas North and South of the area extending to the city and need to prepare for hard battles for the liberation of that part of the city, which still holds the militants.
