Forces of the 25th Division and Republican Guards of the Syrian Army have made considerable progress and are progressing in central Idlib on the area of the border between the three key cities, Sarakeb, Ariha and Idlib.
According to recent reports, after the incident last night, the Turkish army left Sarakeb and concentrated in the northern part of the city.
Even though shifts in other parts of the front are much slower penetration in the south can be decisive. The Syrian army is located just 11km from the capital of Greater Idlib, the last stronghold of the rebels and the international jihad army. If terrorist forces fail to shift greater reinforcements to this offensive in Idlib, they can gain a decisive character much faster.
The Syrian army already controls 40 percent of the province.
