Turkish-backed jihadists withdrew from Tadif after orders by the Turkish Army
They can control these rebels now but how long until these jihadists aim for turkey.
are you trying to imply TFSA are ex IS fighters? or that TFSA is going to attack Turkey as if every single rebel fighting in syria is literally IS or AQ ? Because one is YPG the other is regime propaganda..

or that TFSA is going to attack Turkey
The obvious implication was that this is possible, yes. Hopefully it does not happen.
as if every single rebel fighting in syria is literally IS or AQ ?
So far none of them have turned against Turkey, on the contrary its their only lifeline. They've been pretty good at fighting ISIS and YPG too.
TFSA has been pretty good at fighting? Name who, when, or where the TFSA have accomplished anything on their own.
Same goes for SAA without Russia or YPG without the Americans.
Afrin campaign has been pretty good though.
How stupid can they be for doing this?
We all knew they weren't very bright to be honest.
Stupid is normally poking a wasps nest.
They are poking a dragon with this action.
Its stupid but they aren't poking a dragon.
It is when you look at how the rebels in Daraa are getting completely smacked, and once that offensive clears up, its their turn
The government has pretty much given that area up to Turkey already.
what else are supposed to do??? twiddle their thumbs till the next tiger forces offensive?
No they're not.
So you think there will be no Russian warplanes bombing them into oblivion once they try to advance?
I pretty sure they are poking a dragon.
Are they staying close to official Turkish army? If so, Russia would not want to end up in a situation where they kill Turkish soldiers. They can, and I'm not saying they will get pounded after or something, but forcing an escalation from a country like Turkey is counterproductive when they are already winning
So Turkey will accompany TFSA to assault the SAA which is an ally of Russia?
I am not sure how well that will work out for Turkey... are you sure they love their TFSA so much to piss off Russia and even risk a direct confrontation? SDF has never attacked SAA because of just that reason.
Russia attacking turkey would invoke article 5
It wouldn't. Syria isn't Turkey's territory last time I looked. Claiming "defense" when you are in another country occupiying large parts of it they'll have a hard time justifying any of it. Especially because they are hated by the rest of NATO already.
Will Turkey take it that far? Russia-Turkey relations are, from what I have seen, quite positive. If Russia makes it clear to only attack the rebels, and not Turkish army, then even if a few Turkish soldiers end up dead/wounded, they should be able to sort it out (like they sorted out the downing of the Russian jet in 2015). Seeing how this attack was a decision made only by the rebels and not Turkey (Turkey ordered them to withdraw), there is a real possibility that Russia and Turkey can make some sort of deal.
The Russians have already declined to bomb any TFSA since the Turkish Army entered Northern Syria.
Tomorrow they will be saying, that russia broke the ceasefire when they will give them some small scale "lecture" bombing
That's exactly what they said when Afrin YPG attacked Turkish positions in retaliation.
They are supposed to wait a decent interval of a few years before moving down toward Aleppo again.
