Hard to see not responding to this. Negotiations over Idlib reportedly broke down last month w/ Turkey reinforcing since then. Assad always itching for a fight and Russia maybe in the mood to give Turkey a bloody nose. Problem is 1/2

I'm being told by a Turkish-backed Syrian fighter in Idlib - 88 have been killed... still trying to confirm that.

Erdogan just confirmed that Turkey had tested Russian made S-400s earlier this month. “We aren’t going to ask the US what to do. Tests continue”

Again this is quite close to the Israeli border, so quite notable imo

Gantz commenting on the strike (while declining to confirm Israel is behind it): "We won’t allow terrorist operatives from Hezbollah or Iran to set up on the Golan Heights border and we will do what is necessary to drive them out of there"

Anyway, this really raises question as to what the deal is, whether it's pure political gesturing, or a more transformative deal, that could see the UAE, Israel, KSA, connect (with this potentially connecting to the East Med pipeline - if it ever happens).

BTW, this also raises the question of Cairo's opinion of the deal? I am not sure this agreement is in Egypt's interests (remember Sisi invested greatly in the Suez Canal over the past years). And there was a project to extend Sumed to Yanbu (through Sharm el-Sheikh).

If this is the plan, it would suggest some form of normalization with Saudi Arabia. If this is not the case, I am not sure the agreement is as significant as it's made to be. There's already a maritime route from the Med to the Red Sea (Suez) and a land pipeline (Egypt's Sumed)
