The Idlib Free Army categorically denied the report published on Al-Arabiya news channel on the existence of coordination with the Turkish side to carry out a military operation against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in Idlib province.
The channel has published a report saying that Turkey intends to repeat the process of the "Euphrates Shield", in cooperation with the factions of the Syrian Free Army of Idlib, and aims to expel HTS out of the province, in an operation called the "Idlib Shield."
The media had previously reported similar operations, and there were other reports about Turkey's intention to pay troops to enter the city of Idlib and establish military points within the Syrian territory, but the Turkish side denied this completely.
Attention is drawn to Idlib,in which Western media promotes that Idlib is just a bastion of al-Qaeda branch (Jabhat al-Nusra) HTS currently, while the United States vows to eliminate HTS," which the US considers it as al-Qaeda affiliate group despite the announcement of disconnection.
The Syrian arena in general and Idleb in particular has seen a state of tension, due to the HTS figures accusing some of revolutionary factions of collusion with foreign countries in order to fight HTS, which is categorically denied by these factions..
