Turkey's Erdogan says Syria rebels in new Idlib operation

"Today there's a serious operation in Idlib and it will continue", Erdogan said in a televised speech.

Following his speech, Erdogan answered questions of journalists, "not yet in TSK Idlib, Öso re", he said. We won't let them down.

The president also said that Russian Federation and Turkey are acting jointly regarding the protection of people in Idlib, while adding that Turkey will provide security for Idlib's interiors and Russian Federation will protect the outer and border areas.

The two leaders discussed developments in Iraq and Syria as well as bilateral relations between France and Turkey, and regional issues, the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.

The president later told reporters the operation was led by Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebels and that the Turkish army was not yet operating there.

Calling the operation a "new step" to establish security in Idlib, he promised Turkey would not desert civilians there. "We expect that the large-scale operation that has been prepared will be launched perhaps within the next 24 hours", the rebel said.

"The Free Syrian Army ( FSA) is now carrying out the operation and our soldiers haven't yet entered Idlib", Erdogan said, adding that the name of the operation will be announced.

Erdoğan was also asked about whether the method to be used in the Idlib operation will be similar to the Euphrates Shield Operation. "The goal of the operation is to liberate Idlib fully from Tahrir al-Sham".

"Are they going to hand over their weapons - we don't think this is going to be the case - or are they going to fight against the FSA and the Turkish army in the near future?" said Ahelbarra.

It has been a formidable military force since early in the war, when it transitioned from bomb attacks in cities to guerrilla conflict with the Syrian army, fighting alongside many other factions.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said the strikes were probably carried out by the Syrian air force, which has been carrying out an intensifying bombing campaign against opposition targets in Idlib province alongside aircraft from ally Russian Federation.

The incursion is being carried out after Iran and Russian Federation, which back President Bashar al-Assad, and Turkey, which supports the rebels, agreed last month to reduce fighting between insurgents and the government in the northwest. Turkey, however, has backed rebels seeking Assad's ouster.
