250,000 displaced in Idlib
Turkey, Syria, and Russia at odds
By Craig C. White
Fighting has intensified between the Syrian Army in Hamah and Al-Qaeda rebel groups in Idlib as Turkey reinforces the rebel forces with heavy weaponry including anti-tank missiles. On May 30, 2019 Turkey sent a military convoy to Idlib in order to reinforce Al-Qaeda rebel groups fighting against the Syrian Army in Hamah. Turkey and Russian talks to withdraw the Syrian Army have failed. This is the biggest sign yet of a direct confrontation between the Turkish Army and the Syrian Army.

250,000 civilians have been displaced in the Idlib province of northwestern Syria in the past month. These civilians have been forced to live in tents, frequently moving to avoid the war zone. These refugees must remain in Idlib because Turkey has closed its border.
The Syrian regime insists on retaking the Idlib province which is the last remaining rebel held territory in Syria. Russia is supporting Syria’s efforts. Last year Russia made a deal with Turkey to disband the various Al-Qaeda rebel groups in Idlib but Turkey has failed to do so; instead Turkey has strengthened the rebels and have unified them under Turkish leadership. Turkey has also established twelve Turkish Army observation posts inside of Idlib and says that they will not leave even if Syria retakes Idlib.
Conditions in Idlib are reaching a critical point. I expect that the Turkish Army will soon press a concerted attack on the Syrian Army in Hamah and also on the Kurdish held town of Tell Rifaat. The Turkish Army now surrounds Tell Rifaat. Turkey has vowed to conquer Tell Rifaat which is the last remaining Kurdish held town in northwestern Syria.
If you are a Bible reading Christian then you should certainly be aware that the Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23.
Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
