 It's not at all clear if fighting has really intensified, since fighting has been consistent in Idlib for years now. How would the intensity be quantified?  It can't be and that's why the 'chicken little' approach to covering Idlib has been avoided here.

The claim of "blow to Turkey" is being made in regard to the securing the two highways.  Though, it's completely out of touch with reality to my mind. You may ask- Why do you say that?  Why is this situation being viewed so differently here then elsewhere?
