25,000 men initially, masses of armored vehicles, lots of artillery like the battery firing in the picture, plenty of Syrian and Russian air support.

The day of reckoning for the jihadis, the FSA unicorns and the collaborators therewith who have holed up in Idlib Province has arrived.

The wretched neo-Ottoman at the head of the Turkish government has promised the Idlibians that they will be protected from the SAA.  IMO this is just another example of his essential hostility to the world that exists outside his addled brain.  pl
