The Arab newspapers issued on the Syrian issue touched on several topics, the most prominent of which was the situation in Idlib, and in this context Al Bayan newspaper pointed out, “The situation in Idlib began to enter an unprecedented turn in the history of the Syrian crisis, with the launch of the qualifying war and the series of assassinations between the leaders and members of the armed factions in Idlib, as a result The recent agreement signed by Ankara with Moscow, which led to a sharp mixing of cards, returned Turkish ambitions in Syria to the lowest level since 2011”.
