All units? you do realize the entire Idlib force they have is like 30k-40k Plus strong. You do remember when they made all those deals to evacuate the rebels where they sent them right?.
Barely have any strength left? they have a massive amount left to spare and that's not counting the FSA and the turks.
If you think Idlib is going to be a cakewalk keep dreaming, they have not been one push since the SAA got forced back.
Frankly, unless Russia goes all out with aid the SAA cannot take Idlib.
Idlib is empty land. How many people do you think can live there no water no food no oil no electricity? Don't let that 3 million propaganda fool you. It's not even 100,000. Think medieval days. 30,000 soldiers? 40,000 soldiers? What a load of BS. It's no more than a few thousand at best. Russia can take Idlib within a month like how Turkey took Afrin within a month. Tough soldiers? What a load of crock.
Who said Three Million, learn to read I have the rebels have a military force of 30-40K and yes they have that many if you think they have just a few thousand, something wrong with you if it was just a few thousand. Assad would have stream rolled them years ago. I have no idea where you guys are getting this bogus idea it's a couple of thousand when even Russia said over a year ago before Damascus was liberated etc that there was 20K Plus in Idlib.
That said They do have farms in Idlib, and electricity, water, etc.
Turks took Afrin within the month because they vastly outnumbered the less then 7k Strong force the Kurds had there, and the Turkish army along with the FSA attacked.
Like the SAA is all pro's only a handful of units in the SAA are competent the rest has proven unreliable again and again.
