BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – A new militant video was released this week from the strategic city of Ariha, which is located along the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia) in the Idlib Governorate.

In the short video, a militant is filmed threatening the Russian military in Idlib, warning the latter that “we are waiting for them”.

The threat from the militants comes a day after the Russian military, alongside their Turkish partners, began their patrol missions along the M-4 Highway.

While the patrols did begin on March 15th, they were cut short after 60 protesters crowded the highway to block both the Russian and Turkish forces from accessing the remainder of the roadway.

That would be a big mistake to attack a Russian peacekeeper convoy.

Russia’s response will be predictable. They’ll fly over long range bombers, and and additional jets. Turkey will be told to remove their forces or else. In coordination with naval forces, Russia will launch a massive missile strike and aerial bombardment–like 2015/2016 and across the entire Idlib. They’ll lose thousands of men and vehicles, and will garnish zero international support, because they handed Russia a permission slip.
