With such a series of victories culminating in the regaining of Saraqeb, the joint forces (Syria and allies) have managed, first and foremost, to put an end to Erdogan’s Ottoman-like dreams, to Pompeo’s illusions and to the illusions of both Pompeo’s envoy to Syria James Jeffery and Washington’s envoy to the United Nations Kelly Craft, both of whom were “brought” to Idleb by Erdogan’s Minister of Defense to celebrate a “victory” he was dreaming of.
He was fancying that the Turkish Army onslaught would be a “success” and they would capture the entire province of Idleb as well as the western and south-western countryside of Aleppo so that they would be in control of the strategic motorways M5 and M4.
Had something of the sort really taken place, the entire battle of northern Syrian from Kassab in the West up to Qamishli in the East would have ended up in favor of the Zio-US-Turkish-Israeli axis. Fortunately enough for Syria, the exact opposite has happened.
The Russian-Turkish deal has not only recognized the Syrian government’s control of all the areas liberated since 2018 and thus far, but has de facto secured Syria’s control over all the areas lying to the south of Aleppo-Latakia motorway – a vast area still in the hands of Erdogan’s terrorist proxies.
The 6-km-deep “safe zone” along each side of the motorway would effectively cut off all supply lines to the terrorist proxies still holding on to some positions to the south of the motorway and would render these positions militarily fallen.
The new military balance set on the Syrian battlefield has knocked down the delusional dreams of Washington’s envoy (US Ambassador) to the UN Kelly Craft, wife of the Billionaire Joe Craft since 2016. Joe Craft is rated as the third largest producer of Coal in the United States.
His wealth is put at about four billion US dollars and he is an investor in several energy companies.
So, may be she was hopeful that Erdogan would control Idleb province and this would open the way for her husband to be in control of the Energy sector in Idleb and elsewhere.
The fanciful dreams of James Jeffery, known for his close links to the Military Industrial Complex, were likewise blown up in the air.
Jeffery was ostensibly dreaming that the Turkish Army would sweep through the countryside areas of both Aleppo and Idleb so that chances of selling Patriot batteries to Turkey would be enhanced.
He has been repeatedly demanding the US Administration to supply Turkey with Patriot missile batteries, but top Pentagon Generals repeatedly turned these demands down. Erdogan, too, was asking the US to supply him with Patriot systems, especially in mid February, when he was in full swing to launch the pre-planned conspiracy in Northern Syria, in coordination with Netanyahu and Pompeo.
To be clear, the Pentagon top brass Generals, who view their “Kurdish” allies as more competent and less costly than Turkey – often dubbed as NATO’s “second largest” army – have thrown James Jeffery’s delusional dreams under the bus, because they care more for the effectiveness of the Patriot systems than the mere marketing.
In light of all available data, one can easily notice that the Ridwan Brigade and fellow resistance formations, including thousands of Yemeni fighters, who are eager to join the resistance fold on the northern front, are now ready for any potential show-down with the occupation entity, in case it decided to venture into an all-out war.
