Russian Delegation Visits Turkey to Discuss Syria's Idlib Ceasefire - What May Happen To Rebels Within?

The ceasefire agreement was general- based on previous agreements made.
Now comes the fine tuning. Conducted through a series of meetings. The first will take place tomorrow:
A Russian military delegation will hold talks with Turkish officials in Ankara on Tuesday to discuss a deal which the two countries reached last week for a ceasefire in northwest Syria’s Idlib region, the Turkish Defence Ministry said on Monday. 

The deal, reached in Moscow on March 5, was designed to contain a conflict which has displaced nearly a million people in three months and raised the risk of a military clash between Turkey and Russia.
Turkey said at the weekend that there had been no violations of the ceasefire. Operational details of the agreement are yet to be worked out.
Under the deal, they agreed to establish * a secure corridor near the M4 highway, which runs east to west through Idlib. *They said they would agree on the parameters of the corridor within seven days. *Joint patrols there were to begin on March 15. * The corridor will stretch 6 km (about 4 miles) to the north and 6 km to the south of the M4. However, it was not clear what would happen to the pocket of rebels which it will create to the south of the highway.
 “The meeting, which will be held with the Russian Military Committee within the framework of the agreement reached in Moscow on March 5, 2020, will start on Tuesday, March 10 in Ankara,” the ministry said in a tweet on Monday.
Under the agreement, all military activities are to end in Idlib with the establishment of a security corridor 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) to the north and south of the key M4 highway.
Joint Turkish-Russian patrols will also begin on March 15 along the M4 highway from the settlement of Trumba -- 2 km (1.2 miles) to the west of Saraqib -- to the settlement of Ain al-Havr, according to the deal.
What might happen to the rebels within? Let's see.....
It's entirely within the realm of possibility the "rebels" will exit undercover of the refugee flow.
That way Europe can have their thugs back and present them as "refugees"
In the same way Canada took their thugs back too. (In my opinion, under the guise of taking refugees in, Canada retrieved the irregulars that did the very dirty work in Syria)  
It was clear in the multiple images that were shown in the msm recently that there were many fighting age males in the outflow of refugees. (see image below)  I've written about this reality previously.  
Can it be proven? Nope. 
But, does it seem likely and make a whole bunch of sense? YES!

Arab Weekly
A migrant shows tear gas canisters to media members as they wait on the no man’s land between Turkey and Greece, at Turkey’s Pazarkule border crossing with Greece’s Kastanies, near Edirne in Turkey, March 5.

" While there is no evidence that extremists have recently attempted to reach Europe through the Turkish-Greek border, there are precedents."
Precedents surely imply evidence. 

 Recall many times my asking why, oh why, did Russia and Syria shift the terror crowd to Idlib? Because, it was Russia and Syria that drove busload after busload of these persons straight to Idlib. They undertook that action for some reason known to them.
"There’s a very specific reason Assad chose to allow residents of opposition areas safe passage and refuge in Idlib and the northern fringes of Aleppo province and not, for example, the Lebanese, Jordanian or Iraqi border areas. It’s because the Assad regime knew that to pen in millions of people on the Turkish border would have a greater potential destabilising effect on Europe, Turkey and the West than on its neighbouring Arab countries (which Damascus probably calculated would refuse to resettle in their own countries).
I don't want to say what Assad would have known. HOWEVER, it was clear these persons were moved to Idlib for some reason. And really, why not as one stop on the long road back where they belong. Turkey's been sending this crew back to their home nations for some time already.
While HTS may or may not continue to fight the regime until it is forcibly removed from Idlib, where do its fighters go then? And the ISIS cells? They, potentially, may be heading for the Greek border in hopes of reaching mainland Europe from where they could be expected to plot further carnage.
While there is no evidence that extremists have recently (there is evidence of prior passage) attempted to reach Europe through the Turkish-Greek border, there are precedents. Terrorists responsible for major attacks in France and elsewhere used the migrant trail to get from ISIS-controlled territory in Syria and Iraq to the continent in 2015.

 Yes, the migrant cover has been used previously. And will likely be used again.
