In the Idlib enclave, there is still no progress in the establishment of the demilitarized zone, even after the extension for the implementation of the Sochi agreement. The Headquarters for the Liberation of Al-Sham, which is the dominant force in the Idlib region, refuses to remove its heavy weapons from the demilitarized zone and has publicly announced this. The situation on the ground is generally quiet. The rival sides take advantage of the respite to prepare for the possibility that the Syrian campaign for the takeover of Idlib will start.
