Idlib, that Syrian northern city that shares vast borders with Turkey (around 130 kilometers) and which is overpopulated due to displacement and the increasing number of those seeking refuge there as according to today’s estimates, the population there today is around 4 million people, may be the final chapter in the Syrian tragedy.
Everyone knows that Iran, Russia and Bashar’s forces have for years adopted the approach of driving all armed Islamized factions, primarily Al-Nusra Front (Al-Qaeda) and other armed wings in support of Turkey from Syria’s center, south and west towards the far north, Idlib.
