كتب ناصر قنديل Nasser Kandil wrote: The battle of Idlib

The news coming from Maarrat al-Nu'man about the beginning of the progress of the
Syrian army after fortifying the Abu Dahour Airport indicates that the battle of Idlib has
started practically, especially after the beginning of Syrian-Russian raids in the west of
Aleppo on the locations of Al Nusra front.
 The words of the Russian Foreign Minister about the failure of Turkey in implementing
Sochi understandings on Idlib and his considering the control of Al Nusra front a new
complication and a catastrophic development means to behold Turkey the responsibility
of granting Al Nusra front the opportunity to enhance its position by delaying the military
act against it under the pretext of granting the political action more time. It was proven
that it was the time which Al Nusra needed to expand its control under the eyes of the
Turks.
 Despite the difficulty of understanding that the Turks were not able to do anything to
deter Al Nusra front, it is important to know that the Turkish endeavors to postpone the
military action were in vain. The Turks came out of Astana path feeling of abject failure
that will reflect on their political situation after the military resolving, because who has
the control on geography and fights the terror has the right to put conditions.
 The complexity faced by the Turks after the visit of Erdogan to Moscow and the fall of
his wish of a safe area and the decisive Russian alternative to return to Adana Agreement
make Erdogan in a state of missing his opportunity in Idlib, he did not succeed in
replacing it with an opportunity in the eastern of Euphrates. However, this is better for
Syria, its sovereignty and the unity of its territories.
