Violence in the northwestern Idlib province, has displaced more than 38,500 people in less than two weeks, the UN said on Thursday. Syrian rebel commanders said that Ankara has sent weapons and ammunition to opposition forces in Idlib, to fight back when the SAA's offensive is launched.
The head of the Turkey-based Syria's National Coalition (SNC), Abdulrahman Mustafa, said that the rebels would not turn against Hayy'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the wake of a government assault on Idlib.
Talks between Russia, Turkey and Iran have focused on Idlib, as Syrian President Assad warns the northwestern province is next target. Turkey is working to clear Idlib from al-Qaeda and IS-affiliated groups in order to prevent the Syrian Government from attacking the city.
